Paper Abstract

The concept of micro wall jets has been applied to the low Reynolds number (Re≤1), two-dimensional channel flows which may be found in biosensor microfluidic systems. The current numerical investigation utilizes the lattice Boltzmann method for flow field, temperature and binary fluid transport computations. Inlet and wall temperatures were specified along with various binary fluid properties to demonstrate their effect on the main channel flow due to the addition of micro wall jets. Results indicate similar levels of mixing for single and double jet configurations. The data also indicates the potential of using opposing jets to focus the binary fluid in the center of the channel.
