UV Disinfecting System for Aircraft Cabins
The current global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has impacted people around the world and has caused many industries to come to a halt because of the risks of transmission. Due to the way the virus is transmitted and its ability to survive on surfaces for an extended period of time, there is a strong need for ensuring proper cleaning and disinfection of frequently visited areas. This is particularly important for the transportation industry (air, rail, subway, etc.), where seating and support structures are shared among many travelers, with little possibility of avoiding contact. In order to begin re-opening these methods of transportation at scale, the public needs to have confidence that these environments are safe.
Simulation can be used to design the right UV light treatment system for each environment and for validating that sufficient doses of UV light are being delivered to ensure virus deactivation.
