Abstract : A fluidic resistor module, including resistor channels connected in parallel between two common ports, is permanently adjustable by deforming the cross sections of the individual channels by externally applied forces. The channels are formed on the interior surface of an exterior plate of a bonded plate module, and the indicia indicating the locations of channels are formed on the exterior surface of the plate. A pair of adjustable resistor modules are used to null opposed fluidic bias means in a laminar fluidic device. (Author)
