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 ...
A procedure for the motion of particle-encapsulated droplets in microchannels
A fixed-grid approach for modeling the motion of a particle-encapsulated droplet carried by a pressure-driven immiscible carrier fluid in a microchannel is presented. Three phases (the carrier fluid, the droplet, and the ...
Microfluidic rheometer based on hydrodynamic focusing
This paper reports the concept and the optimization of a microfluidic rheometer based on hydrodynamic focusing. In our microfluidic rheometer, a sample stream is sandwiched between two sheath streams. The width of the ...
