System of equations for describing dynamical problems associated with the mechanics of lung parenchyma

  • A. I. D'yachenko
  • G. A. Lyubimov


In [1], which is an expanded version of the paper [2], the equations of conservation of mass and momentum are shown to be valid for dynamical problems of lung parenchyma. This system of equations is now closed by means of the heat flux equation. As in [1, 2], the heat flux equation is obtained on the basis of the methods of the mechanics of heterogeneous media [3] and anatomical data on the structure of lung parenchyma.
