|Abstract:||In the present paper, a computational methodology for the development of microdevices and microreactors are presented. The methodology was based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), i.e., the solution of transport equations governing the flow field. The methodology presents a step-by-step tutorial for modeling and simulation of such microdevices that can be used by beginner or experienced users. The proposed methodology was employed in two study cases: fluid mixing and fluid mixing accompanied by chemical reaction. Two new geometry designs were evaluated: a micrometric scale channel with triangular cross section (MT) and a millimeter range scaled channel (MTB). It is expect that the reported methodology contributes to the popularization of CFD usage among researchers, scientists and Microfluidic enthusiasts. Also, it can motivate future studies to focus firstly on geometry optimization by numerical simulations, providing a faster and economical way to develop microdevices|
