Abstract

In this study, the channel size dependence of transport properties of a water droplet was clarified by molecular dynamics simulations. Considering several models of a micro channel, we evaluated forces between the water droplet and the solid wall. From these results, we clarified that the friction forces depend on the width of the channel and the size of the droplet. Moreover, the effect of the liquid-vapor interface was considered.
