Modeling of Microfluidic Devices Using Scalable Algorithms

Authors: L. Stals

Affilation: Old Dominion University, United States

Pages: 536 - 539

Keywords: numerical methods, finite and boundary element methods, multigrid methods, parallel programming

We present parallel algorithms for the solution of micro uidic equations. The algorithm consists of the multigrid method in combination with adaptive finite elements. These methods give good algorithmic and parallel scalability and are thus very efficient. Model test problems are taken from Electroosmotic ow simulations.
