Parameter Optimization of a Tesla Microvalve
Application ID: 69591
The topology optimized Tesla microvalve is used as inspiration for a parametrized geometry. The optimization of this geometry takes erosion and dilation of the geometry into account by optimizing over a parametric sweep. In this example the optimization is driven by the worst of the 3 geometries realized in every parametric sweep.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Optimization Module and
- either the CFD Module, Chemical Reaction Engineering Module, Corrosion Module, Electrochemistry Module, Electrodeposition Module, Heat Transfer Module, Microfluidics Module, Pipe Flow Module, Plasma Module, Porous Media Flow Module, or Subsurface Flow Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
