Background. The design of inhaler devices plays a critical role on the performance of dry powder inhalers (DPIs). Computational analysis is useful to simulate the air flowfield generated in the device and investigate the interactions between particle-particle and particle-inhaler.
Aims. The objective of this study is to understand the mechanism of .. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
