Presentation and objectives of the experiment

The the objective of this experiment is to open up a commercial opportunity Elvesys, a French engineering and manufacturing SME, is a relevant company for Elvesys. Plug and Play control systems for research microfluidics. The objective is to install in the cloud a library of simulation models of microfluidic devices that can be used to simulate easily interconnect to virtually test the configuration of the microfluidic system before physically constructing it. This will allow Elvesys and its customers to examine the system’s hardware microfluidic before building or buying it, select parts to the specific objectives and to develop better flow control algorithms. The development of this system requires the use of HPC resources for launching and solving simulations multiphysics that reproduce the behavior of the components of the system, as well as to analyze the data resulting from such simulations. The latter will allow the derivation of reduced order models. (ROM) of these components. These ROMs can then be interconnected to build virtual circuits and run virtual tests for all the integrated microfluidic chain, linking different physical domains and control algorithms in the simulation of the complete system. The cloud Fortissimo will be used to host the graphical user interface that will guide the latter throughout the entire process.
