Spreading factors and social distancing

The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered a large number of scientific studies that resorted to numerical simulations of droplet dispersion in order to design social distancing measures (e.g. a minimal distance between two individuals). The project Spreading_Factors aims at setting up a methodology to help quantify the relative importance between the input physical parameters and their impact on droplet dispersion as well as to quantify uncertainties on the output results. Christophe Henry, researcher (Calisto team) and project leader, presents a brief outline of the project
