Viscous flow down a membrane trough

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An inclined, gravity driven, open membrane trough is used as a low-cost fluid transport conduit. The membrane shape and the fluid velocity are determined numerically. The optimum opening width for maximum flow is found to be 0.651 of the membrane perimeter.
