Numerical and experimental investigations of the formation process of ferrofluid droplets
This paper reports both experimental and numerical investigations of the formation process of ferrofluid droplets in a flow focusing configuration with and without an applied magnetic field. In the experiment, the homogenous ...
Behavior of microdroplets in diffuser/nozzle structures
This paper investigates the behavior of microdroplets flowing in microchannels with a series of diffuser/nozzle structures. Depending on the imposed flow direction, the serial structures can act either as a series of ...
Motion of a droplet through microfluidic ratchets
We report numerical and experimental studies on a droplet moving through an array of mirofluidic ratchets. Droplets are formed at a T junction and subsequently forced through microfluidic ratchets in the form of diffuser/nozzle ...
Numerical study of the formation process of ferrofluid droplets
This paper numerically investigates the influence of a uniform magnetic field on the droplet formation process at a microfluidic flow focusing configuration. The mathematical model was formulated by considering the balance ...
Numerical studies of sessile droplet shape with moving contact lines
This paper numerically studies the equilibrium shape of a sessile droplet with moving contact lines. The Navier- Stokes equation was solved through the finite volume method on a Cartesian staggered grid. The level-set ...
