Investigation of hydrodynamics and mixing processes in microchannel devices by means of micro-PIV and micro-LIF techniques

In the present work micro-PIV and micro-LIF techniques development results for investigation of hydrodynamics and mixing processes in microchannel devices are presented. Developed experimental techniques were successfully applied for experimental investigation of flow regimes and mixing processes in a T-shaped micromixer. Also micro-PIV technique was applied to investigate laminar-turbulent transition in a straight microchannel with rectangular cross-section.
