Indoor Aerosol Distribution Patterns

These videos present the aerosol distributions generated by a breathing human. In every breath, 10,000 particles with diameter of 1 μm are omitted through the mouth. The mesh contains 65.5 million cells (δx=4.8mm). 10 seconds were simulated using a cluster with 400 cores (20 nodes). The results show the very different aerosol distributions (yellow) and the deposit particles (blue) in two different scenarios: without background air flow (left) and with an air flow of 10 m/s by a filter vent (right).
