The effect of flow rate, head position, and inhaler orientation on the airflow and particle deposition in an mribased mouththroat geometry
(International Symposium on Turbulence and Shear Flow Phenomena, TSFP10, 2017)The mouththroat plays a key role in the administration of inhaled medicines. It is an area of intense filtration, where an unacceptably high fraction of the released drug dose is deposited and thus wasted. Due to the ...
