Minimization of risk is key in sanitary crisis management. With a zero tolerance policy, many companies must be able to design spaces - such as a set of rooms, an airplane cabin, or a vehicle cabin - which are designed to limit virus propagation, while providing cooling, or heating.
In order to design those 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, often carried by microscopic water droplets.
In the mist of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, designing safe air supply and exhaust systems for a temporary hospital to be built in days was a tremendous challenge. A Chinese design institute chose Dassault Systèmes' simulation solutions to evaluate and optimize the hospital's ventilation system to effectively avoid cross infection caused by airflow and pollutant discharge.
