    During a normal lung-function test to determine the health state of a human lung, lung airway collapse will occur and limit the outflow at the mouth of a person. The aim of the study is to obtain qualitative and quantitative insight in the flow in, and the deformation of, the elastic tubes that constitute the lungs.
