Abstract

A computer model has been developed for analysing the deposition of inhaled electroaerosols in human airways. The effect of electrostatic charges on the total aerosol deposition efficiency in the human respiratory tract has been investigated. Based on measured data, a computer prediction can be made of the site of deposition in human airways.
