The deposition of inhaled aerosols and particles in the human lung can cause severe damage. To understand the cause of pathologies inherited from such depositions numerical simulations of the flow in the human lung using a Lattice-Boltzmann Method (LBM) are performed. Particles within the flow are tracked using a Lagrangian approach and the deposition locations are analysed for different particle densities and diameters.
