The inhalation project is a multi-disciplinary research project investigating health risk and injury caused by inhalation exposure. We combine computational modelling with experimental measurements to explore and better understand air-and-particle dynamics. Our outcomes translate the fundamental research to resolve practical particle inhalation issues.
