The physical properties (density, …) and macroscopic varia bles (velocity, temperature,…) are averages on a sufficient number of atoms or molecules. If N ~ 104 is a number of molecules high enough to be significant, the side length of a volume containing these N molecules is about 70 nm for a gas in standard conditions and 8 nm for a liquid. These dimensions are smallest than those of a microchannel whose characteristic dimension Lc is between 1 to 300 µm. The transport properties (heat and mass diffusion coefficients, viscosity) depend on the molecular interactions whose effects are of the order of magnitude of the mean free path Lm .
Heat transfer in microtubes with viscous dissipation is investigated by Tung and Bayazitoglu . The temperature jump, is ignored in the calculation of the temperature distribution, but taken into account in determination of the Nusselt number. Conventional pressure driven flow requires costly micro pumps giving significant pressures . A micro scale electro-osmotic flow is a viable alternative to pressure-driven flow, with better flow control and no moving part . Liquid is moved relative to a micro channel do to an externally applied electric field.
