FLUID-MECHANIC MODEL FOR FABRICATION OF NANOPOROUS FIBERS BY ELECTROSPINNING

ABSTRACT
A charged jet in the electrospinning process for fabrication of nanoporous fibers is studied theoretically. A fluid-mechanic model considering solvent evaporation is established to research the effect of solvent evaporation on nanopore structure formation. The model gives a powerful tool to offering in-depth physical under-standing and controlling over electrospinning parameters such as voltage, flow rate, and solvent evaporation rate.
