NNIN Seminar

Comsol Hands-on Workshop on Microfluidic Devices

Dr. Ahsan Munir

Application Engineer
COMSOL
 
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
1:30pm - 4:30pm
1005 EECS, Beal Ave., North Campus

 

About the Event

In this Workshop, we will focus on COMSOL’s Microfluidics Module which encompasses easy-to-use tools for the study microfluidic devices. Important applications include simulations of lab-on-a-chip devices, digital microfluidics, electrokinetic and magnetokinetic devices, inkjets, and micro-pumps. The first half of the workshop will focus on COMSOL’s general purpose multiphysics features which will be used to set up coupled electorkinetic and magnetodynamic simulations including electrophoresis, magnetophoresis, dielectrophoresis, electroosmosis, and electrowetting. The second half of the workshop will be a hands-on session, where the participants will be made to work on the simulation of an Electroosmotic Mixer. Users will be able to learn to simulate Microfluidics problems from the experts. A free evaluation license for COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a will be provided to all the participants.
