Abstract

We present results from a robust numerical model that predicts the deformation in electrokinetically operated micro- and nanofluidic channels with a step change in conductivity. This model accounts for the coupling between pressure and the change in hydraulic resistance from deformation. Using this model we unearth a relationship between the final deformation and the initial pressure and use it to predict deformation in typical micro- and nanofluidic systems and reveal that significant deformation orCha even channel collapse can occur under ordinary operating conditions.
