Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

Airflow in the lungs is predicted using computational fluid dynamics in order to characterize disease specific airflow patterns and provide useful information for military medical applications. To validate these models, the sponsors/customers (Dr. Robinson and Dr. Day) are seeking to obtain experimental data of airflow in replicas of human lungs, both healthy and diseased. The objective of the senior design project is to develop an experimental apparatus that can be used to obtain velocity profiles using particle image velocimetry for a given hollow lung model.
