Welcome to the JAFM online scientific journal system

JAFM is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal with a scope that covers all aspects of theoretical, numerical and experimental fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the applied rather than purely mathematical aspects of fluid mechanics.

JAFM offers a rapid and high quality peer-review process overseen by its distinguished international Editorial Board. The journal benefits from an efficient online submission process and online publication upon acceptance.

JAFM papers are freely available and the accepted papers are published free of cost.

For further assistance for submitting manuscripts, the JAFM secretary may be contacted by the following email address: secretary@jafmonline.net.

Title : Blood Flow in Prefractal Media: Rheological Model Approaches and Sensitivity Analysis
Pages : 1675-1682
Authors : A. Miguel, 
Anstract : The development of microfluidic media supporting blood flow is significant for many applications. Prefractal models have considerable potential for contributing to the study of flow in these media, since information about scale complexity is captured by a small number of parameters. Flows of power law fluids, Bingham fluids and described by the marginal zone theory are considered. In this study, physically based models for estimating the permeability of a microfluidic porous materials are presented. Models are derived assuming that media are represented by a bundle of tortuous capillary tubes with fractal pore-size distributions. They are expressed in terms of porosity, microstructural parameters and fluid characteristics. Expressions for the flow resistance through single tortuous tubes, and the relationship between fluid velocity through tortuous tubes and through straight tubes, in terms of fractal dimensions, are also obtained.

Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics

The Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics (JAFM) is an international, peer-reviewed journal which covers a wide range of theoretical, numerical and experimental aspects in fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the applications in different engineering fields rather than on pure mathematical or physical aspects in fluid mechanics. Although many high quality journals pertaining to different aspects of fluid mechanics presently exist, research in the field is rapidly escalating.
