Title:
Computational Modelling of the Respiratory System for Improvement of Mechanical Ventilation Strategies 
Abstract:
This paper is concerned with a brief outline of our computational models of the respiratory system against the background of acute lung diseases and mechanical ventilation. We divide the lung into two major subsystems, namely the conducting airways and the respiratory zone represented by lung parenchyma. Due to their respective complexity, both parts are themselves out of range for a direct numerical simulation resolving all relevant length scales. Therefore, we develop detailed individual model...    »
