Physics-informed modelling for microfluidics

The miniaturisation of chemical and biological processes for gas sensing, water purification, cell culture and separation, and micro-reactors is an important factor to reduce costs while increasing performance and efficiency. Miniaturisation requires microfluidic tools for the precise manipulation of complex fluids at the microscale. Microfluidics offers several advantages such as speed, precision and control of those physical processes.However, the lack of fundamental understanding of the microscopic flow mechanisms, in particular the behaviour of non-ideal fluid mixtures, is a critical aspect …

Computational modelling of liquid marbles

Liquid marbles are liquid droplets coated with super-hydrophobic particles. They possess interesting properties such as the ability to contain liquid content without wetting surfaces and enhanced elasticity.Numerous experimental studies on liquid marbles and their properties have already been reported in the literature. For example, novel microfluidic applications, miniature bioreactors and gas sensing mechanisms. Despite plenty of experimental work, there is limited computational modelling investigations of liquid marbles represented in literature.A successful numerical model would be able to derive new insights …
