Transport and Deposition of Micro-Aerosols in Realistic and Simplified Models of the Oral Airway

  title={Transport and Deposition of Micro-Aerosols in Realistic and Simplified Models of the Oral Airway},
  author={Jinxiang Xi and Philip Worth Longest},
  journal={Annals of Biomedical Engineering},
A number of in vivo, in vitro and numerical studies have considered flow field characteristics and micro-particle deposition in the oral airway extending from the mouth through the larynx. These studies have highlighted the effects of flow rates, turbulence and particle characteristics on deposition values in realistic and simplified geometries. However, the effect of geometry simplifications on regional and local deposition patterns remains largely un-quantified for the oral airway and… CONTINUE READING
