Optimization of Tesla valve

In this article (link) the No-Moving-Parts valve inspired from the Tesla valve is topology optimized with coupled fluid dynamics. It is a very clever piece of design from the amazing Nikola Tesla that allows easy flow of fluids in one direction but impedes their motion in the other direction, and without any¬† moving parts. Sen Lin from Chinese Academy of Sciences has taken Tesla’s invention and took it one step forward by optimizing it. We hope there can be some applications someday.
