The dynamics of microcapsules in fast liquid-gas flows (i.e., inertial regime) is a fundamental problem that lies in the heart of numerous important applications, such as fast particle/cell sorting, encapsulation, and three-dimensional (3D) cell printing. This project will developed numerical simulation tools and fundamental understanding of the capsule and the two-phase fluid dynamics in inertial flow regimes.

Direct liquid cooling incorporating microchannels has drawn more and more attention due to its high heat removal ability; also the microchannel heat sink could be directly integrated into heat-dissipating devices. However, there are still some crucial challenges to be overcome. With regard to single-phase cooling, a conventional…
Multiphase flows with moving contact lines are widely found in nature and in industrial applications, including droplet spreading/splashing, coating flows, oil/gas transport, carbon storage and oil recovery, microfluidcs, boiling/condensation etc. The manner in which contact lines can move has been a subject of a long-standing…
Dynamics of microcapsules in inertial two-phase flows that supports research on the microfluidics involved in capsule migration in small channels.
Flexible particles (FP) including capsules, vesicles and cells are small droplets enclosed by thin membranes. They are widely found in nature and have numerous applications in food, cosmetic, textile, biomedical and pharmaceutical industries (e.g. drug delivery and release). In many applications FPs are subjected to external…
