A numerical model for particle transport in microchannel is presented. This article focuses on situations where the sizes of the particles are comparable to the sizes of the channels. The present approach is validated against (1) flow around stationary, (2) flow around forced rotating, (3) flow around freely rotating cylinders and (4) sedimentation of a circular cylinder under gravity. With the present model, the motion of particles carried by an incompressible fluid in a microchannel system is studied.
