Abstract

The flow factor approach model was used to study the effect of temperature on water transportation in a nano slit pore flow driven by the pressure. The influences of the temperature on the density and viscosity of water and on the water-wall interaction were considered. The results show that enhancing the temperature of water significantly improves water transportation in nanochannel, especially when the channel height is so low that the water non-continuum effect is significant. The mechanism of this temperature effect is that the temperature increase not only appreciably reduces the water viscosity but also considerably alleviates the water non-continuum effect, in these circumstances the water flow rate through the channel owing to the Poiseuille flow is significantly increased.
