Title: Multiphase flow regime transitions with high-viscosity fluids in microchannels
Abstract: Microfluidic platforms are useful for producing and tailoring the properties of multi-component materials, yet our current ability to structure and process thick substances is limited. In this talk, I will discuss basic hydrodynamic destabilization processes between fluids having large differences in viscosity and examine combinations of miscible and immiscible fluids flow configurations. Various aspects of high-viscosity fluids multiphase flows are investigated to better characterize relationships between fluid properties and transport phenomena in confined microsystems. Focus is on the formation and evolution of interfacial waves, diffusive threads, and droplets at vanishing interfacial tension to refine our understanding of high-viscosity fluid dynamics and improve manipulations of thick materials at the small scale.
