An efficient computational fluid-particle dynamics method to predict deposition in a simplified approximation of the deep lung (2018)High-fidelity simulations of the complete airway tree are still largely beyond current computational capabilities. Towards large-scale simulations of the human lung, the current study introduces a numerical methodology to ...
In silico assessment of mouth-throat effects on regional deposition in the upper tracheobronchial airways (2018)Regional deposition of inhaled medicines is a valuable metric of effectiveness in drug delivery applications to the lung. In silico methods are now emerging as a valuable tool for the detailed description of localized ...
(Affiliation: UCY-CompSci Computational Sciences Laboratory, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, CyprusCorrespondence Address: Radhakrishnan, H.UCY-CompSci Computational Sciences Laboratory, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 2009)Understanding transport and deposition of inhaled particles in the human airways plays a crucial role in the targeted therapy of pulmonary diseases, and the administration of inhaled medicines. Numerous researchers have ...
