High-fidelity CFD simulation of cough droplets in an airplane
Miércoles, 17 de junio de 2020, de 18.00 a 18.00 hs Horario de Virginia (US)
Webinar en inglés

The COVID-19 pandemic has rewritten the rules of travel for now and in future. Social distancing, one of the keys to stopping transmission, cannot be enforced the same way in an aircraft.

In this webinar, Siemens and Airbus will talk about the role of high-fidelity CFD simulation in understanding the transport of human cough droplets in an aircraft cabin.

In this webinar, Siemens and Airbus will discuss:

- Simulation of cough droplets from an average human in a commercial aircraft

- Challenges in engineering aircraft cabins

- The role of simulation and Simcenter STAR-CCM+ in understanding aircraft cabin safety

- Steps involved in understanding risk of disease transmission from cough droplets

The joint team will discuss the complexity of modeling the transport of cough droplets in an aircraft, as well as the impact and effectiveness of face masks in reducing droplet transmission from a cough.
Simulations were done using Simcenter STAR-CCM+, a Multiphysics CFD simulation tool from Siemens Digital Industries Software, which was used to support the methodologies developed in this preliminary study.
