Abstract : The three year program focused on modeling of fluid mechanics in micromachined systems. The program supported a graduate student at MIT (Ed Piekos). The program was successful in exploring the effects of rarefaction and the use of different computational tools for analyzing and simulating flows in MEMS devices.
