A publication by a research group at SEMS and Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU) has succeeded in being considered as some of the most accessed and best published research from 2012 in a blog by Wiley Online Library.

The journal paper, accessed using the link below, investigates the effect that roughness has on flow and thermal boundaries in liquid channels at both a micro- and nano-scale level. The team concluded that for flow to remain the same, the roughness of a surface in a channel should be inversely proportional to the height of the channel.
