Fluid-structure interaction at the microscale: How to get from A to B and building micro-machines

Fluids and Materials Seminar

19th April 2018, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Main Maths Building, SM3

Microscale fluid dynamics looks quite different from what we are used to seeing in day-to-day life. Brownian motion becomes a significant effect and the low Reynolds number means we cannot swim through fluids as we are used to. I will describe some laboratory experiments that demonstrate how to perform two important tasks: how to get from A to B, and how to build bigger things from smaller components.
