Abstract: It is well known that the hydrodynamic drag on particles is significantly enhanced close to a plane or curved boundary. This enhancement impedes the movement of the particles in both the parallel and the normal directions with respect to the wall. In the presence of a temperature gradient, the Brownian movement of particles induces the phenomenon of thermophoresis, which results in the steady motion of the particles toward the colder domains of the flow field. This paper examines the effect of the enhanced wal…
