The role of the combined use of experimental and computational methods in revealing the differences between the micron -size particle deposition patterns in healthy and asthmatic subjects
Quantification of airway deposition of aerosol particles is essential for the assessment of health risks of detrimental particles. Knowledge of deposition distribution is important also in the case of treatment with ...
Measurement of an electronic cigarette aerosol size distribution during a puff
(EDP SCIENCES, 2017-05-12)
Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) have become very popular recently because they are marketed as a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking and as a useful tool to smoking cessation. E-cigarettes use a heating element ...
Prediction of localized aerosol deposition in a realistic replica of human airways using experimental data and numerical simulation
(EDP Sciences, 2016-11-15)
The presence of aerosol deposition hot-spots in human airways presumably contributes to development of various diseases. The overall aerosol deposition in human lungs can be predicted with sufficient accuracy nowadays. ...
