    Abstract

    Microfluidic channels are an essential part of any lab-on-a-chip system. They usually perform various functions, such as transporting liquids from A to B or mixing or separating liquids. As production costs for such systems are not insignificant, it is essential that the systems are designed properly before the fabrication, in order to avoid unnecessary fabrication repetitions. The use of simulations can give a good idea of how microfluidic systems work, to the point where a significant part of the design optimisation can be done theoretically. This chapter will provide some basic information on how to embark on these types of simulations, explaining the basics of microfluidic modelling and providing examples.
