Computational analyses of JP-8 fuel droplet and vapour depositions in human upper airway models

This study reviewed JP-8 fuel droplet and vapour deposition in human upper airway models, the contrasting deposition pattern between aerosols and vapour as well as the resultant exposure risk. The method considered different inspiratory flow rates, droplet trajectories, evaporation, and deposition. The authors analysed and modelled with Newton’s Second law and scalar equations, whereas fuel vapour transport and deposition were described with a modified mass transfer equation.
