Micro/Bio/Nano Fluidics

Integrating mechanical, fluidic, optical, and electronic functionality in a very small package, modern microfluidic devices have important advantages over their conventional counterparts in terms of cost, scale and their ability to integrate directly into larger systems. 3D modeling and visualization are efficient tools for providing rich quantitative analyses, substantially reducing research time, design and production costs. Micro, bio and nano fluidics can be easily and accurately simulated with FLOW-3D’s free surface and multi-fluid modeling capabilities. We invite you to explore the various applications and processes that can be better understood through simulation.

Description

Fluidic oscillators are flow control devices that work based on the Coanda effect and generate spatially oscillating bursts (or jets) of fluid. These oscillators have no moving parts and are thus rugged and maintenance-free devices. The most common application of fluidic oscillators include windscreen cleaning devices on cars or trucks, fluidic amplifiers, flow separation control and drag reduction, controlling actions, flow meters, mixing or separation of chemical components, micro-bubble, and micro-drops generating, noise control, injector nozzles, and different sensors. This FLOW-3D simulation shows the internal flow of a fluidic oscillator along with the sweeping jet in the external flow field.

Customer Case Studies

Challenges, smaller than can be seen by the naked eye, are what our customers using FLOW-3D to model microfluidics applications face every day. FLOW-3D allows these engineers and scientists to model what they cannot replicate in the laboratory, to validate life-saving medical devices, study inkjet formation and in some cases, model the naked eye. Sometimes the smallest problems are the biggest to solve… but FLOW-3D can help.
