Title: Microscopic molecular dynamics characterization of the second-order non-Navier-Fourier constitutive laws in the Poiseuille gas flow

Abstract

The second-order non-Navier-Fourier constitutive laws, expressed in a compact algebraic mathematical form, were validated for the force-driven Poiseuille gas flow by the deterministic atomic-level microscopic molecular dynamics (MD). Emphasis is placed on how completely different methods (a second-order continuum macroscopic theory based on the kinetic Boltzmann equation, the probabilistic mesoscopic direct simulation Monte Carlo, and, in particular, the deterministic microscopic MD) describe the non-classical physics, and whether the second-order non-Navier-Fourier constitutive laws derived from the continuum theory can be validated using MD solutions for the viscous stress and heat flux calculated directly from the molecular data using the statistical method. Peculiar behaviors (non-uniform tangent pressure profile and exotic instantaneous heat conduction from cold to hot [R. S. Myong, “A full analytical solution for the force-driven compressible Poiseuille gas flow based on a nonlinear coupled constitutive relation,” Phys. Fluids 23(1), 012002 (2011)]) were re-examined using atomic-level MD results. It was shown that all three results were in strong qualitative agreement with each other, implying that the second-order non-Navier-Fourier laws are indeed physically legitimate in the transition regime. Furthermore, it was shown that the non-Navier-Fourier constitutive laws are essential for describing non-zero normal stress and tangential heat flux, while the classical andmore » non-classical laws remain similar for shear stress and normal heat flux.« less

  • We consider a new way of establishing Navier wall laws. Considering a bounded domain {omega} of R{sup N}, N=2,3, surrounded by a thin layer {sigma}{sub {epsilon}}, along a part {gamma}{sub 2} of its boundary {partial_derivative}{omega}, we consider a Navier-Stokes flow in {omega} union {partial_derivative}{omega} union {sigma}{sub {epsilon}} with Reynolds' number of order 1/{epsilon} in {sigma}{sub {epsilon}}. Using {gamma}-convergence arguments, we describe the asymptotic behaviour of the solution of this problem and get a general Navier law involving a matrix of Borel measures having the same support contained in the interface {gamma}{sub 2}. We then consider two special cases where wemore » characterize this matrix of measures. As a further application, we consider an optimal control problem within this context.« less
  • We consider the hydrodynamics of relativistic conformal field theories at finite temperature. We show that the limit of slow motions of the ideal hydrodynamics leads to the nonrelativistic incompressible Euler equation. For viscous hydrodynamics we show that the limit of slow motions leads to the nonrelativistic incompressible Navier-Stokes equation. We explain the physical reasons for the reduction and discuss the implications. We propose that conformal field theories provide a fundamental microscopic viewpoint of the equations and the dynamics governed by them.
  • We present a projection method for the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in an arbitrary domain that is second-order accurate in both space and time. The original projection method was developed by Chorin, in which an intermediate velocity field is calculated from the momentum equations which is then projected onto the space of divergence-free vector fields. Our method is based on the projection method developed by Bell and co-workers which is designed for problems in regular domains. We use the continuity equation to derive a pressure equation to compute the gradient part of the vector field. An integralmore » form of the continuity equation is used to give us a natural way to define the discrete divergence operator for cells near the boundary which ensures the diagonal dominance of the resulting pressure equation. We then use the restarted version of the GMRES method to solve the pressure equation.« less
  • In this paper we describe a second-order projection method for the time-dependent, incompressible Navier--Stokes equations. As in the original projection method developed by Chorin, we first solve diffusion-convection equations to predict intermediate velocities which are then projected onto the space of divergence-free vector fields. By introducing more coupling between the diffusion--convection step and the projection step we obtain a temporal discretization that is second-order accurate. Our treatment of the diffusion-convection step uses a specialized higher order Godunov method for differencing the nonlinear convective terms that provides a robust treatment of these terms at high Reynolds number. The Godunov procedure ismore » second-order accurate for smooth flow and remains stable for discontinuous initial data, even in the zero-viscosity limit. We approximate the projection directly using a Galerkin procedure that uses a local basis for discretely divergence-free vector fields. Numerical results are presented validating the convegence properties of the method. We also apply the method to doubly periodic shear-layers to assess the performance of the method on more difficult applications. {copyright} 1989 Academic Press, Inc.« less
