We present a distributed model of the bronchial tree which simulates the global dynamic characteristics of the lung. Local mechanical characteristics of each airway are represented by RCL circuits and parameters of the electrical components are determined from local physiological data. The bronchi geometry is described by Weibel's symmetric model, the flow in each airway is assumed laminar and mixing effects at the bifurcations are neglected; the transpulmonary pressure is assumed to be… CONTINUE READING
