Description: 

Eliminating environmental or other airborne contaminants within medical, biological research and production facilities is critical to the success of their mission. The use of CFD allows for a non-intrusive way of determining air conditions of a room without concern for operator safety potentially disturbing a measurement.

In this webcast we demonstrate how CFD is used for analysis and optimization in several environments: be it determining ventilation rates in an operating room, playing a critical role in minimizing the rate of infection from airborne bacteria and viruses; or a study of a pharmaceutical clean-room environment in which there has been an accidental introduction of an aerosolized contaminant. With CFD, the concentration and distribution of a contaminant can be determined throughout a manufacturing space, operating room or clean room, for a wide range of conditions and on various scales.

Numerical simulations are helping to drive healthcare ventilation codes.

A live demonstration of STAR-CCM+® will show how the simulation results enable visualization of variables like temperature and velocity distributions and help assess the effects of environmental changes on air flow.
