Item Description: At molecular scales, the viscous effects are normally modelled by superimposing macroscopic velocity distributions over a periodic cell with modified boundary conditions. The proposed formulation for modelling the fluid-structure interaction within the periodic cell eliminates the need of superimposing macroscopic velocity distribution to account for viscous effects thereby giving previously unseen insight into the development of boundary layer from the molecular perspective. The wider impact of this fundamental research is in area of nano scale drug delivery application where there is need to calculate drag and lift coefficients at molecular scales using first principles.
