CFD Simulation of a High Tech Operating Room

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The new high tech operating room at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Amberg-Weiden acts as a reference center for innovative technologies and their practical application in, most especially, the area of minimal invasive surgery. In addition to the aspects of work flow and efficiency the focus on placed on air-conditioning and airflow close to the surgical areas.

Inside the framework of CFD analysis, many studies have been conducted concerning the fundamental understanding about air and temperature control. For example, the movement of personnel in the operation area can be simulated and analyzed as to their effect. Based on these results, future or potential optimization in operating rooms or other surgical environments can be identified and assessed.
