Study into Propagation of Aerosols in an HVAC System

Aerosols are unique, they have suspended particles on which gravity has very little effect due to their size, they mostly behave as the air they are mixed with.
This is until the airflow turns sharply near a surface, at which point the momentum of the particles can cause them to collide with the surface and come to rest. Most worldwide studies have assumed that aerosols only behave like a gas and ignore the fact that they will come to rest on a surface. The study was undertaken by LCI models both behaviours and is groundbreaking in the pandemic analysis to date.
