Abstract: In this paper, we study the Lyapunov exponents of a micro chaotic mixer to understand the mixing effectiveness under different operating parameters. A simple kinematic micro mixer model is used for the simulated flow visualization and then for the computation of Lyapunov exponents using two different numerical methods. These two methods generate consistent result to corroborate the existence of positive Lyapunov exponent which is the key signature of a chaotic system.
