      Analysis of expired air of fasting male monks at Mount Athos 

      Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Agapiou, Agapios; Georgiadou, A. (2006)
      Expired air chemical analysis is investigated as a search and locate method for the early detection of entrapped people under the ruins of collapsed buildings after an earthquake. Fasting individuals were examined as a ...

      An efficient computational fluid-particle dynamics method to predict deposition in a simplified approximation of the deep lung 

      Koullapis, P. G.; Hofemeier, P.; Sznitman, J.; Kassinos, Stavros C. (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 ...

      The trapped human experiment 

      Huo, R.; Agapiou, Agapios; Bocos-Bintintan, V.; Brown, L. J.; Burns, C.; Creaser, C. S.; Devenport, N. A.; Gao-Lau, B.; Guallar-Hoyas, C.; Hildebrand, L.; Malkar, A.; Martin, H. J.; Moll, V. H.; Patel, P.; Ratiu, A.; Reynolds, J. C.; Sielemann, S.; Slodzynski, R.; Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Turner, M. A.; Vautz, W.; Wright, V. E.; Thomas, Charles Lawrence Paul (2011)
      This experiment observed the evolution of metabolite plumes from a human trapped in a simulation of a collapsed building. Ten participants took it in turns over five days to lie in a simulation of a collapsed building and ...
