As the world starts recovering from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the infrastructure of everyday life spaces needs to be reexamined. This is a new challenge for many: designers, engineers and architects have never had to consider contagion in such depth before. However, for society to get back to a "new normal" and guarantee safe spaces - such as shops, schools, offices or transportation - for citizens, employees and customers, organization owners must ensure safety through different measures.
In order to design safe spaces, engineers must be able to determine accurately the transport of pathogens from coughs or sneezes within an enclosed area, and consider the possible deposition of such pathogens on contaminated surfaces, as well as air handling and filtration systems efficiency against such pathogens.
Leveraging simulation enables the analysis of the contamination risks and helps to design palliative measures. Communication to reassure population, customers or the workforce also benefits from simulation results, thanks to high quality rendering. Download our whitepaper to learn more.
