In this paper, the flow through a serpentine microchannel with obstructions on wall is studied. Various obstruction geometries ranging from rectangular to triangular are considered. For each geometry pressure drop across single obstruction is studied at various Reynolds numbers. Also the effect of obstruction height on the pressure drop is investigated. A parametric study is conducted for different obstruction heights, geometries and Reynolds numbers.
