3-D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Model Of The Human Respiratory System
The U.S. EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) has developed a 3-D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of the human respiratory system that allows for the simulation of particulate based contaminant deposition and clearance, while being adaptable for age, ethnicity, and sex. This model, based on human scan data, incorporates the extrathoracic region, as well as the tracheobronchial and peripheral airways of the lung. It provides the ability to modify internal face morphology to match external facial features, thus allowing for model customization. It also allows for both oral and nasal breathing, as well as variable breathing patterns.
