Compartmental human respiratory tract modeling of airborne dust exposure from feeding in swine buildings


Compartmental human respiratory tract modeling of airborne dust exposure from feeding in swine buildings



Journal of the Air and Waste Management Association 54(3): 331-341



ISSN/ISBN: 1096-2247

PMID: 15061614

DOI: 10.1080/10473289.2004.10470907

A simple size-dependent compartmental model was developed to describe airborne dust exposure dynamics for the human respiratory tract (HRT) in mechanically ventilated swine buildings Transport mechanisms of airborne dust for HRT include respiration, gravitational settling, turbulent diffusive deposition, inertial impaction, interception deposition loss, and dust clearance.
