Micropolar fluids are fluids with microstructure. They belong to a category of fluids with nonsymmetric pressure tensor that we will name polar fluids, and contain, as a unique case, the well-established Navier-Stokes version of classical fluids that we will name usual fluids. bodily, micropolar fluids may possibly symbolize fluids which include inflexible, randomly orientated (or round) debris suspended in a viscous medium, the place the deformation of fluid debris is neglected. The version of micropolar fluids brought in [65] by means of C. A. Eringen is worthy learning as a truly good balanced one. First, it's a well-founded and critical generalization of the classical Navier-Stokes version, masking, either in conception and purposes, many extra phenomena than the classical one. furthermore, it truly is based and never too complex, in different phrases, guy ageable to either mathematicians who research its thought and physicists and engineers who follow it. the most objective of this booklet is to provide the speculation of micropolar fluids, specifically its mathematical idea, to a variety of readers. The ebook additionally offers purposes of micropolar fluids, one within the idea of lubrication and the opposite within the thought of porous media, in addition to numerous distinctive suggestions of specific difficulties and a numerical technique. We took pains to make the presentation either transparent and uniform.

3) Boundary conditions. 1) on 80, where Vb is the velocity and Wb is the microrotation of points of the solid boundary 80. 2) on 80. 1) is physically clear (the viscous fluid sticks to the solid boundary), there is no general agreement as to the type of boundary condition one should set for the field of microrotation. 1). We shall present some that are met most often. , respectively, cf. [53], A notable contribution ary conditions was made in dynamical conditions of the [65], for example. to the study of physically reasonable bound[7].
