To monitor cabin air quality, infectious disease transmission, and intentional airborne contaminant releases in commercial aircraft cabins, it is necessary to place contaminant sensors in the cabins. Such sensors are often expensive, heavy, and bulky so they cannot be deployed in large quantity. This study used a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) program to study how limited amount of sensors should be placed in an airliner cabin. This investigation first validated the CFD program with the… CONTINUE READING
