Abstract Deformable polydimethylsiloxane PDMS microfluidic devices embedded with three differently-shaped obstacles hexagon, square, and triangle were used to examine the significant challenge to classical fluid dynamics. The significant factors in determining a quasi-steady state value of flow velocity vQS and pressure drop per unit length ∆P-∆xQS were dependent on the characteristic of embedded microstructures as well as the applied flow rates. The deviation from the theoretical considerations due to PDMS bulging investigated by the friction constant and the normalized friction factor revealed that the largest PDMS bulging observed in hexagonal obstacles had the smallest ∆P-∆xQS ratios, whereas triangle obstacles exhibited the smallest PDMS bulging, but recorded the largest ∆P-∆xQS ratios. However, the influence of vQS ratio on microstructures was not very significant in this study. The results were close to the predicted values even though some discrepancy may be due to the relatively mean bulging and experimental uncertainty. The influence of deformable PDMS microfluidic channels with various shapes of embedded microstructures was compared with the rigid microchannels. The significant deviation from the classical relation i.e., f~1-Re was also observed in hexagonal obstacles and strongly dependent on the channel geometry, the degree of PDMS deformation, and the shapes of the embedded microstructures.
