Two 2020 APS DFD conference abstracts are submitted demonstrating preliminary work on understanding dispersion of aerosols during human respiration.
Simulations: Simulations of the Interactions of Coherent Vortical Structures and Respiratory Droplets during Expiration
Experiments: Respiratory Droplets Transport via Vortex Dynamics during Expiration
This is on-going research part of a larger project in collaboration with the faculty in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. The goals are to understand the aerosol dispersion during talking and singing.
