Paper Abstract

A first principles based modeling approach for microfluidic systems is developed. The equations for conservation of mass, momentum and energy are developed for quasi 1D, incompressible fluid flow through MEMS fluid components. The equations are cast in terms of common flow variables, geometric and fluid properties. The results are validated against published data. Analyses and simulations are carried out to qualitatively and quantitatively characterize dynamic and steady-state component/subsystem/system properties that would affect the design and control of such systems.
