Micropumps can be classified into two general categories: mechanical and nonmechanical micropumps (an excellent review on micropumps can be found elsewhere ). In a typical mechanical pump, a membrane is used to produce ...
Temperature gradient generation and control
In today’s microfluidic technology, electrokinetic transport is used to perform many chemical and biological analyses in lab-on-a-chip devices, such as clinical diagnoses, DNA scanning, cell manipulation, cell patterning, ...
Microscale acoustofluidics defines the use of ultrasonic waves onto a fluid inside a microchannel. The acoustic waves are imposed on the fluid through excitation of the microchannel walls with an actuator. Acoustofluidics ...
Microfluidic rotary pump
Rotary micropump is a type of micropump which consists of a rotary element used for moving fluids. Based on different design concepts, rotary micropumps make use of either viscous forces or pressure forces to carry out the ...
Pressure measurements, methods
Experimentation and novel measurement techniques are crucial for the further development of microfluidic devices. Pressure is one basic parameter involved in microfluidic experiments. However, it is not realistic to apply ...
Microfluidic optical devices
Microfluidic optical devices (MOD) are the emerging technology that combines today’s microfluidics technology with the optics. However, MOD can be classified as the integration of these two technologies rather than combination ...
Computational modeling of vehicle radiators using porous medium approach
(InTech Open, 2017)
A common tool for the determination of thermal characteristics of vehicle radiators is the experimental testing. However, experimental testing may not be feasible considering the cost and labor-time. Basic understanding ...
Boundary-Element method in microfluidics

Modeling of an ac-electro-osmosis based microfluidic mixer
The purpose of this study is presenting an active micromixer, which is based on AC electro-osmotic flow driven on 3D micro wires. In order to solve governing equations of AC electroosmosis, a commercial software COMSOL ...
