Micorfluidics and Microheat II
The development of microscale systems has been growing rapidly, making many engineering applications possible. It is now commonly accepted that miniaturization associated to microtechnologies will give birth in the near future to new objects which will affect industrial practice and our daily life in many aspects.

Microfluidics and Microheat constitutes a specific 
research area in the sense that some scale-effects that 
are neglected in macrosystems can then become dominant at 
the micro level. Molecular non-continuum effects may also 
play an important part, in particular in micro-gas flows. 
Mixing in microsystems is on the other hand a real problem 
in micro devices wherein the flow is basically laminar, 
and that is one of the limiting factors in performances 
that can be achieved in MicroTAS and lab-on-chip 
applications. Despite the huge progress achieved in these 
domains, some key problems still remain unanswered, such 
as those encountered in micro-separation strategies.  
However, microfluidics and microheat technologies 
represent one of the best arenas for innovation and the 
emergence of green technologies. 

The course aims to provide the following:

An overview of scale effects in liquid and gas microflows
An overview of scale effects in Microheat
Mixing in Microsystems
Convective heat transfer in microsystems
Interfacial effects over micro-drops
Electro-hydrodynamics with lab-on chip applications
Boiling and evaporation phenomena on the micro-scale
