Steady flow in a model of human central airways.

Abstract

We studied the pressure-flow relationships and flow distribution under steady conditions in a model of human central airways, over a range of tracheal Reynolds' numbers (350-30,000) by using air or helium. We found that the Moody diagram [log coefficient of friction CF = delta P/[1/2 rho (V2/A2)] vs. log Reynolds' number (Re)] had a slope of -1 for Re less… (More)
