Speeding Up DNA Separation in a Microchannel via Simulation
DNA separation takes a long time using traditional methods. Now, researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology have found a faster way to get the job done.
Improving IFE Target Fabrication with a Droplet Microfluidics Method
A common joke is that fusion energy is 30 years away, and always will be. Researchers are using simulation to tackle the challenges involved with of inertial fusion energy target production.
Analyzing a New Droplet-Forming Fluidic Junction with Simulation
A novel oscillatory microfluidic junction design, called a “batwing”, is improving the field of droplet microfluidics by consistently producing uniform and complex double-emulsion droplets.
Simulating Cancer Cell Migration in Microgravity with COMSOL®
Researchers used multiphysics simulation to determine how microgravity effects the migration of metastatic cancer cells. Their results could have new implications for therapy and treatments.
Predict the Performance of Rotating Cone Micropumps with Simulation
Researchers from Texas A&M University used multiphysics simulation to evaluate the fluid dynamics and performance of a rotating cone micropump, a key component in many types of process equipment.
Understand Phenomena in the Viscous Catenary Problem via Simulation
The viscous catenary problem is theoretically and experimentally significant in many industries due to the complex phenomena it entails. Simulation can help us understand this problem.
Preventing Bubble Entrapment in Microfluidic Devices Using Simulation
Microfluidic devices are no match for bubbles. In fact, if bubbles become trapped in a microfluidic device, it could malfunction. Veryst Engineering created a CFD model to study this process.
