Objectives Students know and understand the basic concepts of modelling resistive, capacitive and inductive sensors as well as fluid dynamic tasks. Students are able to

  • model sensors and actuators in different application areas and generalize the results obtained
  • Reproduce knowledge in the field of fluid dynamics, microfluidics and multiphase flows
  • Modeling impedance spectra in microchannels.
  • Basic concepts of fluid dynamics, microfluidics and multiphase flows.
  • Interface tracking algorithms for boundary layer tracking in multiphase flows.
  • Electrical 1D model of microfluidics.
  • Modeling of different classes of sensors (resistive, capacitive and inductive).
  • Finite element, finite volume and finite difference method and their application.
  • Student participation in laboratory experiment and seminar presentation on current topics appropriate to the topics of the course.
Criteria for evaluation Seminar lecture, modelling in computer software and verification of the result by experiment, final test
Methods Blackboard and slide lecture, seminar lecture, laboratory work
