Shape Optimization of a Tesla Microvalve

Application ID: 70921

The topology optimized Tesla microvalve is used as an inspiration for an initial geometry. Second order Bernstein polynomials are used to perturb the shape of the geometry. The resulting design is remeshed in the deformed configuration and the performance is investigated for a range of Reynolds numbers.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
