Increasing Mixing in Microchannels using Design Optimization
Posted Fri January 20, 2017 @05:03PM

Application The latest blog post from Flow Science discusses optimizing microchannel geometry using the design optimization software, CAESESŪ, from Friendship Systems GmbH.

Mixing fluids can be very important in the design of miniaturized chemical and biochemical analysis systems. However, the mixing of fluids at the micro-scale is challenging because of an inherent lack of any mechanism to induce the mixing.

Turbulence is a good natural way to cause mixing, but microfluidic processes are laminar in nature. In a previous blog, I discussed the challenges that arise because of the laminar flow regime and how one might try to overcome the challenges by modifying geometry to induce mixing. In this blog, I will discuss our work on further optimizing the microchannel geometry using the design optimization software, CAESESŪ, from Friendship Systems GmbH.
