Webinar: Analyzing for Particles in Fluid – A Life Saving Example
Particles and solid matter can be present in a fluid flow. Accounting for their movement is complicated. In medicine, it is critical to patient outcome. One example is dry powder medicine, which is becoming popular since it is easier to store in dry, remote, dangerous regions for an extended period. Delivery can be vastly improved with well-designed equipment. The interaction between the active pharmaceutical ingredient, its carrier and the inhaler to deliver the correct dosage in the respiratory system remains a challenge. The combination of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) together with discrete element modeling (DEM) is essential to design a dry powder inhaler (DPI).
