The Design – Multiphase CFD for Water Droplet-Based Microfluidics | ANSYS Fluent
Droplet-based microfluidics manipulates discrete volumes of fluids in immiscible phases with low Reynolds number and laminar flow regimes. Interest in droplet-based microfluidics systems has been growing substantially in past decades. Microdroplets offer the feasibility of handling miniature volumes (μl to fl) of fluids conveniently, provide better mixing, encapsulation, sorting, sensing, and are suitable for high throughput experiments. Two immiscible phases used for the droplet-based systems are referred to as the continuous phase (medium in which droplets flow) and dispersed phase (the droplet phase).
In this analysis, it has been tried to simulate and analyze Water Droplet-Based Microfluidics using Ansys Fluent software.
Geometry & Grid
The geometry required for this analysis was generated by Ansys Design Modeler software. The meshing required for this analysis was also generated by Ansys Meshing software. The mesh type used in this analysis is unstructured. The total number of volume properties for geometry is 8,6107e+011 µm².
For analysis of the separation process, an implicit scheme volume fraction parameter is used to simulate particles. To analyze the separation of the flow generated by the interaction of this interaction flow, the multiphase model of volume implicit has been used. The implicit scheme is used for volume fraction parameters.
The flow input for this analysis is defined as the VELOCITY INLET for input water is 0.0103 (m/s) and oil is 0.0103 (m/s). The walls of the design modeler geometry for this analysis are defined as stationary Wall Motion. The output flow type is PRESSURE OUTLET and the gauge pressure is equal to 0 (pascal).
Discretization of Equations
The Coupled algorithm is used to solve the equations in this analysis. Also, a pressure-based solver for flow is used. The Second-Order Upwind is used only for the discretization of the momentum equations.
In the end, the results are shown as volume fraction contours.
