CBBL's elastic lung simulations win ANSYS Hall of Fame Competition 2019

Our CFD simulation of the "elastic" lung is the academic winner of the ANSYS 2019 Hall of Fame Competition.

We used ANSYS solutions to develop a unique CFD-based elastic lung model that accurately simulated the human respiratory system. Using human digital twins that can be made patient-specific by incorporating real geometry of patients" lungs, researchers tracked the inhalation and flow of aerosol drug particles to the lungs and targeted lung tumors with significantly higher precision than conventional aerosol treatment methods.
