Abstract

We have used molecular dynamics simulations to study the effect of shear flow on the cross-stream migration behavior of polymer chains in a dilute polymeric solution that is confined in a nanochannel. Specifically, we present results for the chain migration phenomenon in Poiseuille flow simulations. Our simulations indicate that solution concentration has a strong effect on the chain migration phenomenon.
