Managing the outbreak, especially as economic activity and daily life resumes, will require specific measures and changes to everyday environments to control virus transmission.
As the world starts recovering from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the infrastructure of everyday life spaces needs to be re-examined. This is a new challenge for many: designers, engineers and architects have never had to consider contagion in such depth before. However, for society to get back to a "new normal" and guarantee safe spaces—such as shops, schools, offices or transportation—for citizens, employees and customers, organization owners must ensure safety through different measures.
In order to design safe spaces, engineers must be able to determine accurately the transport of pathogens from coughs or sneezes within an enclosed area, and consider the possible deposition of such pathogens on contaminated surfaces, as well as air handling and filtration systems efficiency against such pathogens.
Leveraging simulation enables the analysis of the contamination risks and helps to design palliative measures. Dassault Systèmes has developed an Outcome-Based Services approach where our engineers collect data for customers without the resources or experience to run simulations and analyses in-house as a service. Customers focus on their challenges and inputs, while Dassault Systèmes experts run simulations that provide them with valuable and operational results.
