Friday 5 March 2021
On 5th March 2021 at 02:00 PM (Paris time), the ERCOFTAC Pilot Center Henri Bénard has organized its third zoom-meeting on “COVID19 Flows: Fundamentals and Practical Recommendations”. The main points in two invited lectures include the characterization of respiratory sprays (formation, ejection, turbulent fluid and thermal dynamics), and the impact of different masks on the flow physics.
- Professor Detlef Lohse, University of Twente
- Professor Christian Kähler, Bundeswehr University Munich
- 14:00 - 15:00
Extended lifetime of respiratory droplets in a turbulent vapor puff and its implications on airborne disease transmission
Professor Detlef LOHSE
