An asymmetric multiple-path model of particle deposition in the lung airways developed previously (S. Anjilvel and B. Asgharian, 1995, Fundam. Appl. Toxicol. 28, 41-50), was extended to calculate deposition of fibers in the rat lung by replacing the deposition efficiency expressions for particles with those of fibers. The effects of various parameters such as breathing parameters or fiber dimensions on deposition were studied. Fiber deposition fraction for one single breath was calculated per… CONTINUE READING
