Analyzing Contamination Spread in Airplanes with CFD Simulation

Our modern way of life is deeply dependent on air travel and public transportation. COVID-19 has profoundly affected international and domestic travel for business and pleasure, leaving many wondering how we can still travel by air while protecting ourselves from the virus. This webinar explores how high-fidelity physics-based simulations are used to help reduce virus transmission in passenger cabins. We will demonstrate how CFD simulations of flow patterns inside cabins can help optimize airflow to safeguard air travel. Additionally, we will spotlight how optical simulation and CFD tools can help improve the sterilization of cabins via UV rays and electrostatic sprays. While simulations alone cannot provide all of the answers, their capability to study large numbers of design permutations and proof of concept designs quickly and efficiently is instrumental for fighting the spread of COVID-19.

Simulating Safe HVAC Systems with Ansys Fluent

The global COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people and companies around the world. This has caused many industries to be severely limited due to transmission risks. The virus spreads through three primary routes: airborne particles, droplets from a cough or sneeze and touching an infected surface. Although HVAC guidelines and standards may provide minimum flowrates, required pressure offsets and recommended locations for placement of supply/exhaust grilles and diffusers, simulation enables designers and engineers to explore tradeoffs and optimize designs. Factories, hospitals and other public spaces must consider a variety of strategies to mitigate the spread of this airborne disease to help us return to normal daily routines. This webinar will showcase how engineering analysis can help optimize the design and operation of ventilation systems as well as UV disinfection systems for air and surfaces.

  • Learn how Ansys Fluent can be used to analyze contaminant migration.
  • Understand how ventilation strategies can be explored with simulation.
  • Gain insights on simulating UV disinfection of air and surfaces.

Simulation Saves Businesses: Exploring Unlimited Designs with Simulation

Businesses are focused on ensuring the health and safety of their customers and employees. However, it is difficult for them to feel comfortable in enclosed spaces as their surrounding airflow is invisible and unpredictable.

This webinar spotlights a business owner who leverages Ansys simulation to determine the optimum air circulation path to protect customers and employees, enable agility and keep his business open in the wake of the pandemic and during the flu season. We will explore the value of real-time simulation to help visualize design iterations. Additionally, will discuss how simulation helps speed the evaluation of airflow through a building or confined structure.
