The recent development of micro technologies nowadays allows designing complex microsystems devoted to transport, dosing, mixing, analysis or even synthesis of fluids. Applications are numerous and concern every industrial field, so varied as biotechnologies or aeronautics. Microfluidics is a young research area relating to microsystems involving internal flows with characteristic dimensions of the order of one micrometer.
The goal of this book is to provide engineers or researchers with tools for modelling, experimenting et simulating these microflows, as a preliminary step for designing and optimising fluidic microsystems. The various consequences of miniaturisation on the hydrodynamics of gas, liquid or two-phase flows, as well as on associated heat transfer, are analysed. The book is illustrated with examples showing the diversity and the originality of fluidic microsystems.
