  • Abstract : In a non-isothermal Poiseuille flow, we investigate the impact of an internal thermal singularity on the migration of a viscous immiscible droplet. The migration velocity strongly depends upon the type of thermal singularity and where it is located inside the droplet. In $Re \to 0$ and $Pe \to 0$ limits, this mathematical model provides a control mechanism for droplet migration, which may be useful in a variety of microfluidics as well as industrial applications.
