2 Dr. Rama Venkat Dean, College of Engineering Phone: (702) Dr. Mohamed Trabia Associate Dean, College of Engineering Phone: (702) Biomedical engineering is a research area in which the College of Engineering at UNLV would like to see a sustained growth. Our faculty has been involved in many related activities over the last decade. The combination of experimental and computational facilities within the college is a basis for future collaboration with other entities in Southern Nevada. We would like to introduce you to some of our researchers. Please feel to contact us if we can help with your projects and initiatives. Howard R.

The lung model consists of 6.744e6 unstructured tetrahedral computational cells. A steady-state airflow rate was used to simulate the transient turbulent flow regime using a large eddy simulation turbulence model. It is demonstrated that the nature of the secondary vortical flows, which develop in such asymmetric airways, varies with the specific anatomical characteristics of the branching conduits.
