Marit has through her PhD work studied the gas-particle flow through the nasal passages both by experimental methods and by computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
The CFD simulations contribution is a better understanding of the airflow characteristics in the nose, and helps foreseeing the deposition efficiency of particular drug delivery systems. CFD has proven to be a strong methodology in terms of contributing to understanding, visualization and improved design for founders of new technology, both industrial ideas as well as patents for medical companies.
This doctoral program is conducted as a partnership between Telemark University College and Tel-Tek. The defense was held at Telemark University College 28 March 2012.
