Abstract

In this study, we developed a code which can simulate micro flow using Moving Particle Semi-implicit (MPS) method, one of the particle methods. Since surface tension is extremely strong in micro fluid, we introduced a sub-time step algorithm to calculate the surface tension term stably and efficiently. Micro droplet generation is analyzed in a micro channel in two dimensions. The calculated result shows good agreement with experimental data [1].
