Abstract:A multiscale model is developed to simulate filtration process for the fabrication of composite material with nanoparticle additives. The model consists of two components. One is a particle trajectory tracking model (PTTM) which can predict the deposition rate of nanoparticle on the fiber matrix in a single pore structure, and the other one is a macroscale transport model of fluid flow in porous fiber structures. The flow of the fluid in the porous media with a free moving surface is solved by using the meshle… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
