AB - The effect of intrasubject variation on the turbulentflow and aerosol deposition in the extrathoracic airwaysis studied in two realistic mouth-throat geometriesfrom the same subject. An immersed boundarymethod is applied which simplifies the task of gridgeneration for the complex extrathoracic geometriesand allows the use of a structured grid solver. Curvilineargrids that roughly follow the shape of the geometriesare adopted, allowing for much higher resolutionwithin the geometries than Cartesian grids commonlyused in IB methods. An added advantage isthat the grid lines are approximately aligned with thestreamlines, which reduces numerical diffusive errors.The numerical simulations allow us to explain in vitroaerosol deposition data in the literature for the samemouth-throat models. The position of the tongue duringinhalation is shown to have a significant impact onboth the mean flow patterns and the turbulence intensities,which in turn affects extrathoracic deposition.
