The higher the inspiratory flow, the higher the turbulent flow that produces greater inertial forces causing aerosol deposition in more central airways.
While some studies [18, 34, 35] found that the geometry complexity significantly affected acinar aerosol deposition, Hofemeier et al.
Some existing literature of aerosol deposition from turbulent flow within bends is associated with suspended droplet studies in small diameter tubes [15, 18, 21].
