Has had trouble with the grid independence test, the results haven’t made much sense
Also having trouble with the software
Has 2 prism layers and quite a few cells, and the results are still not quite what adrian is looking for
Having trouble getting on to the software as well
Chung: particle modelling of the upper airways would be interesting
Has the upper airways geometry now
Chung: we need to fuse the upper airway geometry to the first geometry set.
Chung: some hard work needs to be done to mesh the upper airways and lower airways together.
Charlie: The coding is in currently in the final stages, with over 1000 lines of code so far
Current limitations: not using patient specific lung boundaries, haven't modelled the lobes so far.
This can be done with approximations to lobe boundaries, i.e. a plane section
Dr. Chung: does the centre point data have any more data than the STl file?
No the same number of generations are on the stl file and the centrepoint file
Has been researching elastic wall behaviour’s influence on flow
And also the relationship between lung volume and airway resistance
Lots of data available on this
Weren’t able to contact Tom
Technical report draft due week 9
Poster deadline week 10
Dr. Chung: The group should meet up more to talk about different project areas.
Adrian: Also need to look at the business background.
3D guys need to meet Talha to sort out their STAR CCM licenses
After meeting: student group talk
Technical report due week 9:
We are writing the report in seperate 3D and 1D sections.
We will do this by each of us first making a mini report for our sections
Things like the introduction and conclusion should be written together
We have set a date for individual project Write ups (no more than 1600 words): Monday week 7
This will give us 2 weeks to combine everything for the report
Daniel is emailing Dr. Chung to ask whether a business section needs to be included in the report due in week 9, or whether this just appears in the executive summary.
