Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Simulations of aerosol deposition in the lungs
(TSFP9, 2015)In the current study, Large Eddy Simulations (LES) are used to investigate the transport and deposition of inhaled aerosol particles (dp = 0.1, 0.5, 1, 2.5, 5, 10 μm) in a realistic geometry of the human airways under ...

Article
The contribution of active and inactive structures to the statistics of a turbulent pipe flow
(2017)The current study is a short followup to our most recent work (Stylianou et al., 2016), where among other things we have presented an effective criterion suitable for distinguishing largescale coherent structures with ...

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 ...
