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 ...
Transport of ellipsoid fibers in oscillatory shear flows: Implications for aerosol deposition in deep airways (2018)It is widely acknowledged that inhaled fibers, e.g. air pollutants and anthropogenic particulate matter, hold the ability to deposit deep into the lungs reaching the distal pulmonary acinar airways as a result of their ...
