Original Abstract

Understanding to airflow during respiratory cycle is prerequisite for assessment of aerosol deposition in upper airways. Respiratory cycle consists of inspiration and expiration phases and its course is imitated by sine-wave function. Our lung model is composite of the larynx, trachea and four generations of branching. Test rig capable to simulate different breathing cycles allowed us to make airflow measurements and compare them with numerical simulation.
