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 in this section.
FLOW-3D has provided excellent qualitative agreement, based on visual observations, as well as good quantitative trend prediction. Just as important, the software accurately predicts design sensitivities. As a result, FLOW-3D has provided valuable insight in support of the advanced research and development activities at Kodak.

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 be able 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.
