Description

Numerous applications of micro-/nanofluidics are related to particle transport in micro-/nanoscale channels, and electrokinetics has proved to be one of the most promising tools to manipulate particles in micro/nanofluidics. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding of electrokinetic particle transport in micro-/nanoscale channels is crucial to the development of micro-/nanofluidic devices. Electrokinetic Particle Transport in Micro-/Nanofluidics: Direct Numerical Simulation Analysis provides a fundamental understanding of electrokinetic particle transport in micro-/nanofluidics involving electrophoresis, di-electrophoresis, electro-osmosis, and induced-charge electro-osmosis. The book emphasizes the direct numerical simulation of electrokinetic particle transport phenomena, plus several supportive experimental studies. Using the commercial finite element package COMSOL Multiphysics®, it guides researchers on how to predict the particle transport subjected to electric fields in micro-/nanoscale channels….
