A meshless numerical scheme [1] is developed in order to simulate the magnetically mediated separation of biological mixture used in lab-on-chip devices as solid carriers for capturing, transporting and detecting biological magnetic labeled entities [2], as well as for drug delivering, magnetic hyperthermia treatment, magnetic resonance imaging, magnetofection, etc. A modified one-way particle-fluid coupling analysis is considered to model the interaction of the base fluid of the mixture with the distributed particles motion. In details, bulk flow influences particle motion (through a simplified Stokes drag relation), while it is strongly dependent on particle motion through (particle) concentration. Due to the imposed magnetic field stagnation regions are developed, leading to the accumulation of the magnetic labeled species and finally to their collection from the heterogeneous mixture. The role of (i) the intensity of magnetic field and its gradient, (ii) the position of magnetic field, (iii) the magnetic susceptibility of magnetic particles, (iv) the volume concentration of magnetic particles (nanoparticles) and their size, (v) the flow velocity in the magnetic- fluidic interactions and interplay between the magnetophoretic mass transfer and molecular diffusion are thoroughly investigated. Both Newtonian and non-Newtonian blood flow models are considered, along with different expressions for the concentration and numerical results are presented for a wide range of physical parameters (Hartmann number (Ha), Reynolds number (Re)). A comprehensive study investigates their impact on the biomagnetic separation. For verification purposes, the numerical results obtained by the proposed meshless scheme were compared with established numerical results from the literature, being in excellent agreement. [less ▲]

Transient, laminar, natural-convection flow of a micropolar-nanofluid (Al2O3/water) in the presence of a magnetic field in an inclined rectangular enclosure is considered. A meshless point collocation method utilizing a velocity-correction scheme has been developed. The governing equations in their velocity–vorticity formulation are solved numerically for various Rayleigh (Ra) and Hartman (Ha) numbers, different nanoparticles volume fractions (φ) and considering different inclination angles and magnetic field directions. The results show that, both, the strength and orientation of the magnetic field significantly affect the flow and temperature fields. For the cases considering herein, experimentally given forms of dynamic viscosity, thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity are utilized. [less ▲]

A numerical solution of the linear and nonlinear time-dependent Schrödinger equation is obtained, using the strong form MLPG Collocation method. Schrödinger equation is replaced by a system of coupled partial differential equa tions in terms of particle density and velocity potential, by separating the real and imaginary parts of a general solution, called a quantum hydrodynamic (QHD) equa tion, which is formally analogous to the equations of irrotational motion in a classical fluid. The approximation of the field variables is obtained with the Moving Least Squares (MLS) approximation and the implicit Crank-Nicolson scheme is used for time discretization. For the two-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation, the lagging of coefficients method has been utilized to eliminate the non-linearity of the corresponding examined problem. A Type-I nodal distribution is used in order to provide convergence for the discrete Laplacian operator used at the governing equation. Numerical results are validated, comparing them with analyti cal and numerical solutions. [less ▲]
