The range of fluid dynamics applications in the lung is vast, encompassing many interesting problems rarely touched in any other single engineering area. A survey of recent work in this field was a simple model of the lung was developed indicating its application to a wide range of similar problems. Finally, new parameters were experimentally investigated in flow through a thin-walled collapsible tube. Results indicated the effects of the parameters to be significant in the flow of blood in the pulmonary capillaries as controlled by the surrounding aveolar pressure. Author
