Spatial analysis of the impact of UVGI technology in occupied rooms using ray‐tracing simulation

See — The use of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) devices in the upper zones of occupied buildings has gained increased attention as one of the most effective mitigation technologies for the transmission of COVID‐19. To ensure safe and effective use of upper‐room UVGI, it is necessary to devise a simulation technique that enables engineers, designers, and users to explore the impact of different design and operational parameters. We have developed a simulation technique for calculating UV‐C fluence rate within the volume of the upper zone and planar irradiance in the lower occupied zone. Our method is based on…
