Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Analysis of surface tension was necessary and important because of dominating in the micro-channel. In this paper, a 3-D theoretical analysis model of pressure gradient has been built. The issues of wetted volume associated with surface free energy and pressure gradient would have been analyzed. When the fluid in the convergent channel, it will be driven by the surface tension force. This finding also has been confirmed by the flow visualization.
