ABOUT Assistant Professor Huei Chu Weng

Huei Chu Weng is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Chung Yuan Christian University and has taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, including Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics (1, 2), Introduction of Fluid Mechanics, Convective Heat Transfer, Numerical Solutions of Differential Equations, Theory and Applications of Nanofluids, Seminar, and Application Topics Workshop (1, 2). His primary research interests are in the fields of thermal-fluid and energy sciences. Research topics include Smart Nanomaterial Science, Micro/Nanoscale Thermal-Fluid Science, Power and Energy Science. A summary of academic contributions is given below: 1. Smart nanomaterial science: A magnetic fluid (also known as ferrofluid) is a colloidal magnetic nanofluid, usually consisting of three components: magnetic nanoparticles, carrier liquid, and stabilizer (or dispersant). Their importance arises from scientific, industrial, and commercial applications such as magnetofluidic seals, lubricants, density separation, ink jet printers, refrigeration, diagnostics in medicine, clutches, tunable dampers, etc. He proposed a modification in the magnetization equation (the WC model) in ferrohydrodynamics (see Weng & Chen 2008 Phys. Rev. E 78, 068301) and initiated the study of the influence of the spin of magnetic moments within particles on the non-Newtonian flow of dilute ferrofluids (see Weng et al. 2008 Phys. Rev. E 78, 056305). Recently, he reviewed the arguments for different field equations in hydrodynamics of fluids with micro/nanostructure and stated the deterministic nature (see Weng et al. 2009 J. Fluid Mechanics 631, 343). 2.Micro/nanoscale thermal-fluid science: Micro/nanotechnology develops a large number of microfluidic and nanofluidic systems in silicon, quartz, glass, plastics, etc. The importance of micro/nanoflow arises from new applications in these system devices, such as microreactor hydrogenation-reaction conduction, microfuel cell transport (or other micropower sources), micropropulsion, microheat exchanging, and microchip cooling, etc. He initiated the studies of buoyancy-driven gas microflow (see Chen & Weng 2005 J. Heat Transf.-Trans. ASME 127, 1053) and thermocreep-driven gas microflow (see Weng & Chen 2008 Appl. Phys. Lett. 92, 094105). He also placed emphasis on the importance of thermal creep (see Chen & Weng 2006 J. Phys. D, 39, 3107, and Weng & Chen 2008 J. Phys. D, 41, 115501) and examined the roles of variable physical properties (see Weng & Chen 2008 J. Heat Transf.-Trans. ASME, 127, 1053) and wall-surface curvature (see Weng & Chen 2009 Int. J. Heat Mass Transfer 52, 1075). Recently, he found that based on the Navier-Stokes (NS) equations subject to the second-order slip boundary conditions, continuum modeling can be valid for the Knudsen numbers up to 1.60 (see Weng & Chen 2008 Phys. Fluids, 20, 106101). This means that NS-based second-order slip models may be used to analyze the gas transport phenomena in microfluidic devices in standard atmospheric conditions operate in the regimes for entire MEMS and Łg-TAS applications. He has published 13 peer reviewed journal papers (10 as first author) and 21 domestic and international conference papers in the past 7 years since 2003.
