Abstract

Using intrinsic coordinates, the slip flow in a minute meandering channel is studied by perturbation about the small ratio of curvature to inverse half gap width. The exact solution for an annulus shows this ratio can be as large as 0.5 with less than 1% error. Velocity slip on the walls and the pressure drop depend on the slip factor. Formula for the pressure drop in a channel with a single bend is derived.
