Book Provides Necessary Information on Microfluidics

Published on September 24, 2009 at 8:10 AM

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Microfluidics 2009" to their offering.

The recent on-going development of micro technologies allows designing complex microsystems devoted to transport, dosing, mixing, analysis, or even synthesis of fluids. These applications are numerous and concern every industrial field, from biotechnologies to aeronautics. Microfluidics is a young research area relating to microsystems involving internal flows with characteristic dimensions of one micrometer.

The goal of this book is to provide engineers and researchers the tools necessary for modelling, experimenting, and simulating these microflows as a preliminary step for designing and optimizing fluidic microsystems. The various consequences of miniaturization on the hydrodynamics of gas, liquid or two-phase flows, as well as associated heat transfer are analysed. The book is illustrated with examples showing the diversity and the originality of fluidic microsystems.
