Shape Optimization of a Tesla Microvalve

Application ID: 70921

The topology optimized Tesla microvalve is used as inspiration for a 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:
