Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent rapid advances in microelectromechanical system have facilitated the applications of various oscillating microstructures, where fluid damping plays a critical role and becomes a main cause of energy dissipation. In the present study, we have used lattice Boltzmann method to investigate the Stokes' second problem for non-equilibrium effect.
