This project has tried to simulate the release of coronavirus particles from a patient’s mouth while talking and using wearing shields to prevent transmission to another person using ANSYS Fluent software.

One of the most important recommendations of doctors regarding preventing disease transmission between people is the use of special masks or wearing shields at low social distances. The present model is designed in three dimensions using Design Modeler software.

The model’s geometry includes a computational space measuring 1.6 m * 2 m * 2.6 m in which two people are facing each other at a distance of 80 cm. One of these two people is designed as a patient, so the patient’s mouth is defined as the source of the virus spread caused by talking.

The meshing of the model has been done using ANSYS Meshing software. The element number is 724,076. Also, a transient solver has been used due to the nature of the project (i.e., particle/virus dispersion).


This study aims to investigate the ability of virus particles to propagate and transmit at a distance less than a social distance. For the present simulation, the discrete phase model (DPM) is used; Because this model allows us to study a mass of particles discretely or bit by bit in a continuously fluid space.

Due to this model’s choice, the virus particles secreted from the patient’s mouth are considered a discrete phase. The open airflow in the computational area is regarded as a continuous phase.

The type of discrete phase behavior will be time-dependent and with a time step of 0.001 s (by Active surface unsteady particle tracking mode).

After activating the discrete phase model, the Injection process must be defined, determining the type and quality of discrete particles injected into the model.

After activating the discrete phase model, the injection process must be defined, determining the type and quality of discrete particles injected into the model. In this model, the emitted particles are defined as Inert type, and the injection type is surface and is done through the surface of the patient’s mouth.

These virus particles have a constant diameter of 0.000001 m and a temperature of 310 K, which are spread between 0 s and 20 s.

A specific Profile has been used to define the velocity and flow rate of coronavirus particles exiting the mouth. This profile shows the velocity and diffusion of emitted particles when speaking.

This way, these virus particles are removed from the patient’s mouth time-dependent. The particle velocity profile is defined as a sinusoidal function with a maximum velocity of 0.33 m/s, and the particle flow rate is defined by a specific ratio to the particle velocity.

Also, the boundary conditions related to the discrete phase model are defined so that the particles in the boundary related to the patient’s mouth have an Escape state, meaning that the particles pass through this boundary.

Masks or shields mounted on the patient’s face have a Trap mode, meaning particles are trapped and accumulate within these boundaries.

Also the RNG k-epsilon model and energy equation also surfaced to solve the turbulent fluid equations and calculate the temperature distribution inside the domain, respectively.


At the end of the solution process, the particle tracking of the virus particles at different time intervals of the simulation process is obtained. This particle sequence is based on the Residence Time and the velocity of the particles.

As seen from the images and according to the simulation process defined, the virus particles are expelled periodically from the patient’s mouth in 20 s.

According to the pictures, it can be concluded that the presence of a shield causes the virus particles to come out of the patient’s mouth to accumulate on the shield and not be transmitted to a healthy person.

    What kind of insights do the provided results give about the effectiveness of shields in the context of COVID-19 spread prevention?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The simulation results indicate the effectiveness of shields in preventing the direct transmission of virus particles. Using discrete phase modeling, the results show that virus particles expelled from a patient’s mouth collect on the surface of the shield. Hence, it demonstrates that shields can act as a barrier, reducing the possibility of particles reaching another person and helping in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

    The training looks very impressive! I learned a lot about virus spread simulation. However, I was wondering if temperature variations between the patient and the surrounding environment affect particle flow, and was this considered in the simulation settings?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Yes, temperature variations can impact the behavior of the particles due to density differences that affect buoyancy. In this simulation, the energy equation was solved, which suggests that heat transfer and temperature distributions were considered within the domain. This would allow the simulation to account for changes in particle flow due to temperature variations between the patient and the surrounding environment.

    I’m very intrigued by the attention to detail in this simulation, especially how the flow rate and diffusion of the virus particles were modeled. Could you elaborate on how accurately this simulation represents real-life virus spread, in comparison to actual case studies or experimental data for COVID-19 transmission?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The simulation intends to closely emulate the real-life spread of virus particles by incorporating fluid dynamics principles and realistic boundary conditions. While it may not fully capture the complexity of real-world interactions and factors influencing the transmission of COVID-19, such detailed CFD analysis can offer beneficial insights. Aligning the model with case studies or experimental data requires careful verification and the application of realistic human respiratory actions and environmental influences.

    What improvements can be made to shield designs based on your study to further prevent the spread of the virus?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      We’re really grateful that you found our training on Covid-19 shields through ANSYS Fluent insightful. Our study reveals that while shields can be effective barriers, to enhance their effectiveness, adjustments such as angling the top portion of the shield outwards might reduce upward particle flow, potentially also adjusting the bottom edge to tightly follow the chin’s contour. Nonetheless, it’s essential to balance modifications for practical everyday use and comfort while ensuring continued protection.

    I was impressed with the level of detail in the Covid-19 shield simulation! Did the results include details on efficacy—like what percentage of particles the shield blocked from reaching the other person?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The simulation indeed tracks the particle sequence based on Residence Time and particle velocity, giving us valuable insights into how shields can be effective in blocking the transmission of virus particles. While specific percentages aren’t provided in the overview, such simulations typically offer quantitative results that can inform us on the efficacy of the shields. In general, the results have shown that the presence of a shield causes most of the virus particles to accumulate on its surface rather than being transmitted, which would indicate a significant percentage of blocked particles.

    The simulation results provide visuals for the particle tracking and effectiveness of the shields. Did it include analysis showing the accumulation of particles on different parts of the shield or just overall effective blocking?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The simulation specifically tracks the virus particles and visualizes their spread and accumulation on the shields. It shows where the particles accumulate, which indicates the effectiveness of different parts of the shield in blocking the spread of the virus.
