Laminar-turbulent transition in a constricted tube: Comparison of Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes turbulence models and large eddy simulation with experiments
(SAGE Journals, 2019-05-27)
Constricted tubes appear in many engineering as well as biological systems such as blood vessels or pulmonary airways. The aim of this article is to test the ability of different turbulence models to predict the flow field ...
Simulation of Airway Deposition of an Aerosol Drug in COPD Patients
Medical aerosols are key elements of current chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) therapy. Therapeutic effects are conditioned by the delivery of the right amount of medication to the right place within the airways, ...
Effect of nanoparticles concentration on the characteristics of nanofluid sprays for cooling applications
This study addresses the effect of nanofluid synthesis on the rheological properties of the resulting fluid and their consequent effect on the characteristics (size and velocity distribution of droplets, spray cone angle, ...
