Project title: Airflow and contaminant visualization with real-time CFD simulation for the hospital operating rooms

Recruitment call: HERE

Objectives: to develop methods and an instrument leveraging the unprecedented pace of technical progresses in esciences, namely use fluid simulations and augmented reality to make visible bacterial contamination.

Expected Results: Gain fundamental knowledge of both airflow and contaminant distribution; Model validation and propose the most relevant boundary setups for an efficient CFD simulation; Propose mathematical model to be applied to have an informative visualization of airflow filed, thermal comfort and bacterial dispersion /distribution in an OR. Automate the CFD process for removing repetitive and non-creative tasks. Enable massively automatized CFD simulations together with smart acceleration procedures.
