Engineering Research Seminar Series 15, 2012: Multiphase Flow in Microfluidics

Dr Wong Teck Neng, Associate Professor from Nanyang Technological University


Date: 2012-07-17
Time: 14:00 to 15:00
Venue: Tutorial Room 9-3-01


Abstract

Microfluidics refers to the science of designing, fabricating and manipulating the fluid flows with a length scale in the order of hundreds of microns. As the geometry changes from macroscale to microscale, many considerations have to be made because the factors not affecting the fluid on the macroscale has become increasingly important in influencing the characteristic and the mechanism of the microfluidics. These include the surface tension and electric double layer. Investigations on continuous multiphase flow and droplets based micro fluids will be presented.
