SINOPSIS

Understanding the transport mechanisms of aerosol particles in enclosures has broad ramifications in the context of cleaning strategies, and health risk assessment (e. g., occupational exposure). This paper addresses airflow pattern and aerosol transport mechanism in a ventilated two-zone enclosure with the outlet (exhaust location) situated at different locations. A numerical approach that combines a Eulerian simulation of turbulent flow with a Lagrangian particle-tracking algorithm is used. Simulations are carried out using solid suspensions with different sizes (1 to 100 µm) and densities (240 and 2300 kg/m3). The effect of location of the outlet (exhaust) on airflow patterns and aerosol dynamics is analyzed and quantified.
