- Use physics based modeling and simulations of aerodynamics and fluid-structure interaction to characterize the performance of commonly used face masks.
- Model includes wide range of facial features found among the population. (3) Use the simulations to help design more effective face masks.
A computational simulation of a cough shows the airflow velocity of droplets moving through a simple face mask.
