Designing Effective Transdermal Drug Delivery Patches with Simulation
Transdermal drug delivery (TDD) patches are more effective and convenient than traditional drug delivery methods. See how Veryst Engineering simulated the diffusion process in a TDD patch.
Evaluating an Insulin Micropump Design for Treating Diabetes
Researchers from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology used simulation to develop a MEMS-based micropump that could administer insulin injections in a safe and painless way.
Model How the Bubbles in a Glass of Stout Beer Sink, Not Rise
Ever notice how the bubbles in certain kinds of stout beer sink to the bottom of the glass instead of rising to the top? We explain this phenomenon using fluid flow simulation.
Simulate Three-Phase Flow with a New Phase Field Interface
The Three-Phase Flow, Phase Field interface, used for modeling separated three-phase flow, computes the shape of the interfaces between the 3 phases and accounts for interactions with walls.
Focusing on an Electrowetting Lens
Simulation can be used to test different viscosity values and analyze the physics of electrowetting lenses, such as those used to change the view angle of cameras.
Creating Ultrafast Polymerase Chain Reaction Tests with LEDs
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, used simulation to develop an LED-based polymerase chain reaction system that shows potential for point-of-care testing. Get the full story.
Simulating a Valveless Micropump Mechanism
Valveless micropumps are integral to many microfluidic systems. Simulation can be used to study the fluid–structure interaction occurring in these components to improve their performance.
Simulating Analog-to-Digital Microdroplet Dispensers for LOCs
University of Bridgeport researchers designed a high-throughput microfluidic droplet dispenser as an analog-to-digital microfluidic converter for use in lab-on-a-chip (LOC) applications.
