Numerical Analysis of Roughness Effects on Rankine Viscosity Measurement Hila Hashemi, University of California, Berkeley Jinquan Xu, Mentor, Florida State University Objective Collecting research experience on computational science and applied mathematics, including defining a problem, formulating solution strategies, implementing the strategies, and anglicizing the results Overview Roughness effects on the pressure loss of microscale Rankine Viscometer tubes are numerically investigated; Surface roughness is explicitly modeled through a set of generated peaks along an ideal smooth surface; A parametric study is carried out to study the

relationship between the roughness and pressure loss quantitatively. Introduction R Rankine Viscometer; Hagen-Poiseuille law; Newtonian fluid through a cylindrical tube with an ideal SMOOTH surface; P r 8LQ where

The pressure loss is a linear function of the tube length; The roughness affects on the pressure loss in a non-trivial way; The rougher a tube is, the more the fluid pressure drops through the tube; It is feasibility to correct the Rankine viscometer measured data through numerical analysis; Mesh refinements are needed along the rough boundary.
