Gas flow simulation through tubes with stardust particle engine

The Challenge: Simulate the flow through the tubes in a medical device. The device is a anesthesia workstation where three different gases are mixed. The device has two main working modes, manual ventilation and controlled ventilation. We had to find a solution to show the flow between the parts in different situations in a very understandable way. We designed a schematic version of the devices‘ […]
