Abstract

Lung walls are covered by a film of mucus, whose motility is fundamental for a healthy behavior. Indeed, mucus traps inhaled aerosols (bacteria, dust, ...), and moves from smallest to largest airways, until it reaches esophagus where is it swallowed or expectorated. A lot of biological parameters are responsible for mucus motion [6], such as the vibrations of ciliated cells covering lung walls (cilia height, frequency, ...), mucus/air interaction, water saturation in mucin network, mucus thickness.
