Passive Micromixers for DNA Analysis Using CFD Modelling Book Description :

Mixing efficiency is an important issue in the design of micromixers, since effective mixing is required between Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sample and restriction enzyme for a fast digestion process. Mixing is improved by chaotic advection through serpentine mixing channels. This leads to the desired reduction in the fluid diffusion path while at the same time increasing the fluid contact areas. The purpose of this research is to evaluate mixing efficiency in microchannel mixers, through a numerical study of different micromixing configuration. To accomplish this, a numerical study is conducted using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach using ANSYS Fluent and CFX Software for different geometries designed. Different geometric configuration were proposed and used: bottleneck near the inlet and along the zig zag and curved shaped rectangular zig zag geometry. Mixing analysis is done by different conditions such as Reynold's number, effect of geometry on fluid flow and different diffusion coefficients by evaluating mixing index of the fluid. Results have shown better and faster mixing index around bottleneck region compared to other. This geometry can be used to model passive micromixers and other microfluidic devices with shorter mixing length and for faster mixing between reagents.

Analysis and Design Optimization of Micromixers Book Description :

This book illustrates the computational framework based on knowledge of flow and mass transfer together with optimization techniques to solve problems relevant to micromixing technology. The authors provide a detailed analysis of the different numerical techniques applied to the design of micromixers. Flow and mixing analysis is based on both the Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches; relative advantages and disadvantages of the two methods and suitability to different types of mixing problems are analysed. The book also discusses the various facets of numerical schemes subjected to discretization errors and computational grid requirements. Since a large number of studies are based on commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) packages, relevant details of these packages to the mixing problem using them are presented. Numerical optimization techniques coupled with CFD analysis of flow and mixing have proved to be an important tool for micromixers design, and therefore, are an important part of the book. These techniques are presented briefly, and focus is on surrogate modeling and optimization applied to design of micromixers.

Micro and Macro Mixing Book Description :

The homogenization of single phase gases or liquids with chemical reactive components by mixing belongs to one of the oldest basic operations applied in chemical engineering. The mixing process is used as an essential step in nearly all processes of the chemical industry as well as the pharmaceutical and food ind- tries. Recent experimentally and theoretically based results from research work lead to a fairly good prediction of the velocity fields in differend kinds of mixers, where as predictions of simultaneously proceeding homogeneous chemical re- tions, are still not reliable in a similar way. Therefore the design of equipment for mixing processes is still derived from measurements of the so called “mixing time” which is related to the applied methods of measurement and the special - sign of the test equipment itself. The cooperation of 17 research groups was stimulated by improved modern methods for experimental research and visualization, for simulations and nume- cal calculations of mixing and chemical reactions in micro and macro scale of time and local coordinates. The research work was financed for a six years period within the recently finished Priority Program of the German Research Foundation (DFG) named “Analysis, modeling and numerical prediction of flow-mixig with and without chemical reactions (SPP 1141)”. The objective of the investigations was to improve the prediction of efficiencies and selectivities of chemical re- tions on macroscopic scale.
