Experimental work over the past decade has shown that recirculation in alveoli substantially increases the transport of particles. We have previously shown that, for nondiffusing passive particles, this can be understood with the aid of Moffatt's famous corner flow model. Without wall motion, passive particles recirculate in a regular fashion and no chaos… CONTINUE READING
