[Colloque] Covid 19 Flows: Study and Practical Recommendations #3

  • 5 March 2021
  • From 14:00 to 16:00
  • Visioconférence

This is the third zoom-meeting of the ERCOFTAC Pilot Center Henri Bénard on "COVID19 Flows: Fundamentals and Practical Recommendations".

The main points in two invited lectures include the characterisation of respiratory sprays (formation, ejection, turbulent fluid and thermal dynamics), and the impact of different masks on the flow physics.

We are pleased to be joined by Professor Detlef Löhse (University of Twente) and Professor Christian Kähler  (Bundeswehr University Munich).

Program (13:30-17:30)


Extended lifetime of respiratory droplets in a turbulent vapor puff and its implications on airborne disease transmission

Professor Detlef Lohse, Physics of Fluids Group, University of Twente, Netherlands


How to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infections via droplets and aerosols

Professor Christian J. Kähler, Institute for Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics, Bundeswehr University Munich, Germany


The talks are organised on Zoom. (ID: 926 5516 0136 / code: 432785 - Starting at 14:00 Paris time, GMT+1)
