Abstract

A study was conducted to demonstrate the applications of microcantilevers in biomedical and thermo/fluid fields. The deflection of the microcantilevers due to biomaterial and turbulence effects was highlighted in this work. The novel patented microcantilever assemblies that were presented in this study can increase the signal and decrease the unfavorable deflection due to flow disturbances. This work paves the road for researchers in the area microcantilever based biosensors to design efficient microsensor systems that exhibit minimal errors in the measurements. Fluid-structure interaction was also utilized to investigate some aspects of the fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics.
