Breathe easier: CFD simulation for Respiratory Drug Delivery

Запись вебинара

Learn how CFD simulation can be used to establish product performance and support the verification process in medical device development.

CFD simulation

Leading medical device and pharmaceutical companies realize that strategic investments in technology (and recruitment) are critical. As such, they have started integrating simulation methodologies on multiple fronts -- from device design to clinical trials, to modernizing their manufacturing processes.

In this webinar, you will learn about one such simulation effort: optimizing inhaler design by analyzing the drug transport into the mouth cavity using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with Simcenter STAR-CCM+.  

Dr. Barzin Gavtash will discuss the latest trends in (and increased use of) simulation for respiratory drug delivery applications. The simulation model that will be shown in this webinar is based on his earlier work on pMDI spray modeling (“Multi-physics theoretical approach to predict pMDI spray characteristics”); his latest work extends the case to analyze the actual drug delivery.   

The webinar will also highlight the key technologies that enable these kinds of simulations. Among them: 

  • Geometry handling and meshing (geometry provided by Materialise)
  • Model setup
  • Simulation analysis
  • Design Exploration

If you are a biomedical or mechanical engineer, or an engineering manager in the field of inhaler design or in respiratory drug delivery, you don’t want to miss this webinar!
