At the macroscopic level, systems usually mix fluids using mechanical actuators or turbulent 3D flow. At the microscale level, however, neither of these approaches is practical or even possible. This model demonstrates the mixing of fluids using laminar-layered flow in a MEMS mixer. This model analyzes the steady-state condition of the fluid flow as well as the convection and diffusion of a dissolved substance in a lamella mixer.
