Samenvatting

In previous work we developed a micro-mixer based on artificial cilia, that was experimentally proven to be very effective. Here, we present numerical simulations of the mixing process carried out using an advanced numerical tool, in combination with OCT experiments, that explain the observed effectiveness. As opposed to what was expected, fluid inertia was found to be the key ingredient for effective mixing.
