Design and Fabrication of 3D Printable Fluid Network Systems

Dr. Beomjin Kwon, an Assistant Professor for the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy has a research opening for the following project:

Students will have the opportunity to develop fluid network systems with novel geometries based on modeling and 3d printing experiments. 3D printing allows to fabricate unprecedented structures with low cost and effort. The novel fluid network systems target several applications including microfluidic systems, compact heat exchanging systems for electronics and human bodies, etc. Students will design the system either based on equation based modeling or numerical simulation tools such as Fluent or COMSOL. The designed systems will be fabricated by a 4k-resolution 3D printer located in our lab.
