Abstract:A compact model to compute flowrate and pressure in micro-fluidic devices is presented. The micro-fluidic flow can be driven by either an applied electric field or by a pressure gradient or both. In the proposed compact model, the complex fluidic network is simplified by using an electrical circuit. The compact model can predict the flowrate, pressure distribution and other basic characteristics in microfluidic channels quickly with good accuracy when compared to detailed numerical simulations.
