Dr. Matthew Hancock co-presented a webinar titled "Modeling Microfluidic Devices with COMSOL Multiphysics" on July 28, 2016. This webinar focused on enhancing modeling and design processes for lab-on-a-chip devices, biosensors, micromixers, inkjet nozzles, and other microfluidic systems. The presentation described methods for simulating microfluidic devices and systems in COMSOL Multiphysics to study and predict more accurately the performance and behavior of designs. The presentation also explained how to couple multiple physical effects in a model, including multiphase flow, heat transfer, chemical reactions, interfacial phenomena, and electrokinetics. Dr. Hancock presented a live demonstration on how to set up a model of a micropump with fully (two-way) coupled fluid-structure interaction (FSI). A Q&A session followed.
