In this paper, we report on the airflow of human nasal cavities by using the numerical analysis. The geometry of nasal cavity is reconstructed from the medical treatment images, it reflected a realistic shape. The reconstructing method shows as follows, its method takes a picture of the nasal cavity with the CT, extract the nasal cavity, and accumulate those images. The computation meshes was generated from the realistic nasal cavity shape and adopted the tetrahedron mesh. The airflow in both nasal cavities were simulated by using a finite volume method (FVM) commercial code, FLUENT. The steady analysis was used in the early research. To imitate the human's breath the unsteady analysis was adopted. This paper is aimed to be shown a result of flow pattern for each breathing styles (Normal Breathing, Shallow Breathing, and sniffing). We show airflow in nasal cavity for the three breathing styles and the difference of airflow pattern.
