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. ...
Study of airflow in the trachea of idealized model of human tracheobronchial airways during breathing cycle
(EDP Sciences, 2014-11-18)
Article deals with numerical simulations and its verification by experiments in trachea of idealized geometry of tracheobronchial airways by using unsteady RANS approach. Respiratory cycle was simulated by sinusoidal ...
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, ...
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 ...
