The Application of Biofluid Mechanics

Boundary Effects on Phoretic Motions of Colloidal Spheres

Authors: Chen, Po-Yuan

  • Focuses on the phoretic motion behavior of various micron- to nanometer-size particles
  • Discusses four kinds of phoretic motions and their applications in biofluid mechanics, i.e. diffusiophoresis, osmophoresis, thermocapillary motion and thermophoretic motion
  • Provides a variety of computer programming source codes compiled using Fortran

About this book

"The Application of Biofluid Mechanics: Boundary Effects on Phoretic Motions of Colloidal Spheres" focuses on the phoretic motion behavior of various micron- to nanometer-size particles. The content of this book is divided into two parts: one on the concentration gradient-driven diffusiophoresis and osmophoresis, and one on thermocapillary motion and thermophoretic motion driven by temperature gradient. Diffusiophoresis and osmophoresis are mainly used in biomedical engineering applications, such as drug delivery, purification, and the description of the behavior of the immune system; thermocapillary motion and thermophoretic motion are applied in the field of semiconductors as well as in suspended impurities removal. The book also provides a variety of computer programming source codes compiled using Fortran for researchers' future applications.

This book is intended for chemical engineers, biomedical engineers and scientists, biophysicists and fundamental chemotaxis researchers. Dr. Po-Yuan Chen is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biological Science and Technology, China Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.
