(A) Channel blueprint. (B) Bottom shear stress values, obtained by differentiation of the calculated velocity fields, are given for the 5 PDMS channels having a 30 mm length, 1 mm width (y axis) and 250 μm (red); 350 μm (orange); 500 μm (green); 750 μm (light blue); 1 mm (dark blue) height, under a flow rate of 1 ml/h.
