AbstractA multiphase lattice Boltzmann numerical model driven by an isothermal interaction potential is applied for the splitting of magnetic droplets in elctrowetting-on-dielectric devices. A hydrophilic magnetic plug is considered inside the liquid droplet and successive uniform force fields are applied in order to split this droplet. The numerical results are compared with experiments on water droplets containing plugs of superparamagnetic beads and good agreement is obtained.
