Think small with STAR-CCM+
The development of microfluidic devices for the Life Sciences Industry has a promising future ahead and research and development for novel concepts are on the rise. Numerical simulations can help pinpoint the key requirements for successful implementation through prototyping and optimization.
  • The Eulerian multiphase model in STAR-CCM+ provides an effective means for simulation two-phase and multi-phase flows and offers an extensive range of sub-models include drag, virtual mass, surface tension, breakup and coalescence models for bubbles.
  • CFD Methods in the Biomedical Device and Diagnostics Industry
    Biomedical device design is facing increasing product complexity while prototype building and testing can take months. The inherent risk in new medical product development can be mitigated through a deeper understanding of the design properties and functions achieved through modeling and simulation. This webcast covers and addresses the benefits of engineering simulation. Experts discuss modeling capabilities for the design of various devices from...

From developing medical test strips to analyzing implanted sensors and drug delivery, to developing lab-on-a-chip models, to prototyping new concepts, STAR-CCM+ can accurately and cost-effectively simulate the motion of minute amounts of fluids and bubbles in the micro-scale environment with micro-channels ranging from the size of a few micrometers to fraction of a millimeter.

The Eulerian multiphase model in STAR-CCM+ provides an effective means for simulation two-phase and multi-phase flows and offers an extensive range of sub-models include drag, virtual mass,  surface tension, breakup and coalescence models for bubbles. Within this Eulerian framework, STAR-CCM+ has the Volume of Fluid (VOF) model that can be used for the simulation of immiscible free surfaces to easily and cost-effectively track bubbles for intricate microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices, assess the formation of droplets in flow focusing geometries and perform micro-scale investigations. 

Optimate, a module in STAR-CCM+, also enables intelligent design exploration and optimization of nontrivial microfluidic devices to improve on their efficiency and open innovative ways to improve quality, reduce cost and shorten time-to-market.
