Multiphysics Simulation of Electro-Osmotic Microfluidic Flow

Multiphysics Simulation of Electro-Osmotic Microfluidic Flow

The linked multiphysics example available in FEATool Multiphysics v1.14.2, examines microfluidic flow and coupled mass transport due to electroosmosis in a channel with a T-shaped junction. With application of an electric field in a micro channel a flow effect is induced along the walls due to chemical reactions between the liquid and the wall material. This effect is called electro-osmotic flow (EOF), and can for example be used in chemical analysis to separate reactants and chemical species.
