What is it about?

This research aims to evaluate the inhalation and touching risks for each passenger in a moving elevator. To accurately evaluate the risks, the effect of vertical elevator movement on the transmission of droplet nuclei is considered in addition to the air supply and the human body thermal plume.

Why is it important?

It is necessary to explore the effects of airflow in moving elevator cars on the diffusion of droplet nuclei and evaluate inhalation and touching risks due to the elevator car being a place where dangerous respiratory diseases can spread.
