When modeling nanoparticle transport and deposition in the human airways, the standard finite element method becomes unstable, and, in order resolve this issue, various stabilization methods were considered for their accuracy and computational cost. Two test problems were used for comparing the stabilization approaches: the Graetz problem and flow through multiple generations of a human airway geometry. The optimal stabilization method depended upon the particle size and geometry, but, for most problems consider, the Graetz problem was the optimal choice.
