Simulations, HPC and technology — the new weapon against the coronavirus

Along with vaccines and drugs, ventilation techniques are becoming a powerful weapon against the coronavirus. These devices clean the air of indoor spaces, such as classrooms, disposing of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, to construct and install fitting devices, researchers must first learn, how viable the virus is and how air cleaning systems can get rid of it in suitable time — before infection occurs. Recently, scientists at NCSA in Bulgaria performed simulations to examine these factors and laid the groundwork for anti-virus ventilation systems for classroom and other populated indoor locations.
