Metrics for Interzonal Dispersion Assessment of Airborne SARS-CoV-2 Within Office Buildings

See — High ventilation rate is increasingly considered as a mitigation strategy for the airborne spread of COVID-19 in existing buildings besides other options like UVGI and indoor air filtration. However, similar measures may also impact energy efficiency of buildings in which they are installed. A careful comparison is necessary in making informed decisions to optimize the building performance while minimizing the risk of indoor airborne virus dispersion. Concrete metrics representing overall building performance can help compare various mitigation strategies to each other. Multizone airflow and contaminant transport simulations using CONTAM software involving parameters such as infiltration rate,…
