Abstract:
The time dependent mass transport of nanoparticles was studied in a patient specific model of the human lungs. The transport of the species was simulated via the convection diffusion equation under varying mass diffusivities, or more specifically Schmidt numbers (Sc). These were Sc=10, 100 and 500 representing small to larger particles respectively. From the results it was found that the realistic geometry plays an important role in the delivery of these particles to the lung wall, for example a...    »
