Summary

Fluidics originated as the description of pneumatic and hydraulic control systems, where fluids were employed (instead of electric currents) for signal transfer and processing. Microfluidics and Nanofluidics: Theory and Selected Applications offers an accessible, broad-based coverage of the basics through advanced applications of microfluidics and nanofluidics. It is essential reading for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in engineering and professionals in industry.

Author Biography

Clement Kleinstreuer, PhD, is a professor of mechanical and biomedical engineering at North Carolina State University. His current research pertains to computational fluid-particle dynamics with applications of micro/nanofluidics to medical device development.
