COMSOL Conference 2013

Microfluidics

Microfluidics phenomena including surface tension, capillary forces, and Marangoni effects associated with single phase and two-phase flows can be accurately evaluated using multiphysics simulation. The papers, posters, and presentations on this page feature multiphysics models for microfluidic devices and applications such as flow meters, droplet focusing, and cell separation.
