Abstract



In this research work, we consider the one dimensional hydrodynamic dispersion of a reactive solute in electroosmotic flow. We present results demonstrating the utility of finite element methods to simulate and visualize hydrodynamic dispersion in the electroosmotic flow. From examination of concentration profile, effective diffusion coefficients were numerically determined for different peclet numbers. Our result shows close approximation to analytic solution.
