An experimental and numerical platform was developed to investigate the fluidodynamics in human airways. A pre operative patient specific geometry was used to create an identical experimental and numerical model. The experimental results obtained from Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements were compared to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations under stationary and pulsatile flow regimes. Together these results constitute the first step in predicting the clinical outcome of patients after lung surgeries such as Lung Volume Reduction.
