Bistability in a simple fluid network due to viscosity contrast Brian Storey, John Geddes, David Gardner Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering Russell Carr University of New Hampshire

2
Problem and model Fluids in inlet 1 and 2 have different viscosities, but are otherwise simple Newtonian fluids.

3
One non-linearity – Arrhenius Law

4
Set flow Q1 and Q2– 2 states Q1 Q2 Qc Q1 Q2 Qc

5
Viscosity ratio = 1 Q1 Q2 Qc Q1 Q2 Qc

6
Viscosity ratio = 2 Q1 Q2 Qc Q1 Q2 Qc

7
Viscosity ratio = 10 Q1 Q2 Qc Q1 Q2 Qc

8
Viscosity ratio = 1,3,5,10,20,200

10
Viscosity ratio =1 Q2=0 QC=0 Q1=0

11
Viscosity ratio=10 Q2=0 QC=0 Q1=0

12
Viscosity ratio=200

13
Experimental setup P1 P2 Qc Water + Sugar P=0

14
Experimental procedure

15
Experimental data of sugar in inlet 2 (μ 2 )

16
Criterion for existence of bistability Arrhenius viscosity law General viscosity law

17
Conclusions This work could have been done ~100 years ago. We predict and observe bistability in a simple network with laminar flow of Newtonian fluids. Flow direction depends on history. Perhaps the simplest example of bistability in (micro)fluidics? Quake Prakash and Gershenfeld Groisman et al
