Abstract

Due to their capacity to carry out complex fluid manipulations at the microscale, microfluidic systems have become more popular in a variety of applications. For a variety of industries, including biomedical diagnostics, chemical analysis, and environmental monitoring, achieving precise and effective fluid control is essential. The electromechanical modeling of microscale fluidic systems using electro kinetic actuation is the main topic of this research study. We propose a thorough framework for comprehending and simulating the electromechanical behavior of these systems by examining the complex interaction between electric fields, fluid flow, and mechanical deformation. This framework aids in improving performance and optimizing device design. This study closes the gap between theoretical understanding and real-world application by delving deeply into electro kinetic mechanisms, governing equations, boundary conditions, and simulation methods. Evaluation techniques and strategy is in real-world settings. The problems, possible applications, and future course of electromechanical modeling around microscale fluidic systems with electro kinetic actuation.
