Local distributions of an inhaled aerosol bolus in the large central human airways are studied numerically by applying the FLUENT CFD (computational fluid dynamics) software package. Focusing on a rigid, symmetric double in-plane bifurcation lung airway model, a finite volume program has been employed to simulate the airflow.
