Abstract
Multiscale mathematical modeling of flows containing particles is conducted in this study using computational fluid dynamics and molecular dynamics. The first study considered continuous media interaction of macro-scale fluid and micro-scale solid particles using computational fluid dynamics and rigid particle dynamics. This study investigates the potential enhancement of heat transfer properties of particulate fluid as well as the effect of injected particles on fluid profiles, and pressure on walls under different particle injection conditions. In the second part of this research, the molecular dynamics simulation was performed to simulate solid-liquid interaction at the molecular level (nanotechnology) to understand their behaviors. The results from two different scales were compared qualitatively.
