Abstract: The particle deposition in human upper airway and lung airways were intensively studied. Most of the investigations considered the flow as steady, and the flow was either laminar or turbulent. However, the actually respiratory flow is strongly dependant on time, and the unsteadiness would affect the particle deposition significantly. In this study, we compared the respiratory flow and particle deposition in CT-scanned human upper airway with both steady and unsteady model in laminar regime. The result indicates that the unsteady effect has significant influence on flow and particle deposition in human upper airways.
