A nonlinear analysis method based on the evaluation of d-infinite and largest Lyapunov exponent was used to study the complex dynamics of air bubbles carried by water and flowing in a microfluidic snake channel. A rich variety of nonlinear dynamics and flow patterns was found through the experimental observation of bubbles’motion. The results and their graphical representation show the capability of the proposed set of dimensionless parameters to classify the nonlinearity of the process showing also its sensitivity to input flow variations.
