Direct-write assembly of biomimetic microvascular networks for efficient fluid transport

Author affiliations

Abstract

Biomimetic microvascular networks with complex architectures are embedded in epoxy matrices using direct-write assembly. Fluid transport in multi-generation bifurcating channels is systematically investigated and maximum flow efficiency is found to occur when Murray's law is obeyed.
