A chaotic serpentine mixer efficient in the creeping flow regime: from design concept to optimization


Motivated by the three-dimensional serpentine channel (Liu et al. in J Microelectromech Syst 9:190–197, 2000), we introduce a chaotic serpentine mixer (CSM) and demonstrate a systematic way of utilizing a mapping method to find out an optimal set of design variables for the CSM. One periodic unit of the mixer has been designed to create two streamlines… (More)
