Table 3 Calculated inlet pressure, outlet pressure and mass flow rate

From: Computational fluid dynamics simulation of airflow in the trachea and main bronchi for the subjects with left pulmonary artery sling

Subject Inlet pressure (Pa) Outlet cross-sectional area (mm 2) Outlet minimum cross-sectional area (mm 2) Outlet mass flow rate × 10 6(kg/s)* Outlet flow velocity (m/s)
