  • Droplet migration in a Hele–Shaw cell is a fundamental multiphase flow problem which is crucial for many microfluidics applications. We focus on the regime at low capillary number and three-dimensional direct numerical simulations are performed to investigate the problem. In order to reduce the computational cost, an adaptive mesh is employed and high mesh resolution is only used near the interface. Paramet-ric studies are performed on the droplet horizontal radius and the capillary number. For… CONTINUE READING
