Numerical study of the formation process of ferrofluid droplets
Physics of Fluids
This paper numerically investigates the influence of a uniform magnetic field on the droplet formation process at a microfluidic flow focusing configuration. The mathematical model was formulated by considering the balance of forces such as interfacial tension, magnetic force, and viscous stress across the liquid/liquid interface. A linearly magnetizable fluid was assumed. The magnetic force acts as a body force where the magnetic permeability jumps across the interface. The governing equationsdoi:10.1063/1.3614569 fatcat:5qtby3jpjfdrnfvgyg2r66ih6a
