Abstract: The combination of computational and experimental investigations provides an excellent approach to understand complex phenomena involved at a microscopic level. This paper emphasizes a new experimental technique capable to quantify the flow patterns inside microchannels with high spatial and temporal resolution. This technique, known as confocal micro-PIV, consists of a spinning disk confocal microscope, high speed camera and a diodepumped solid state (DPSS) laser. Velocity profiles of physiological fluids were measured within different microchannels. The measured results agree reasonably well with the predicted analytical values. This new PIV system is a very promising technique to confirm the validity of the data obtained by numerical simulations, such as the MPS particle method.
