Original Abstract

The article is aimed at experimental setup for research of the air flow and particle deposition in bifurcating airways that represent a human respiratory tract. Two models of the tract are available. The first model was manufactured by Rapid Prototyping based on 3D scans CT acquired. The second silicon rubber model was obtained from Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, lbuquerque, USA. Fluid flow along with the aerosol transport and deposition in the model of the respiratory tract are going to be studied using laser diagnostic systems, such as PIV, PIV-PLIF and PDA, and a high-speed camera for process visualization. The aerosol of different nature and size, ranging from 0.1 to 12 ěm, will be generated with a condensation generator in large range of the aerosol concentration. The generator is connected to the process aerosol monitor that continuously monitors the aerosol parameters. The flow will be investigated in both stationary and oscillatory flow regimes. As a source of oscillatory fluid flow, Scotch Yoke mechanism generating a sinusoidal inhalation/exhalation will be used.
