Cell-DEVS Models With BIM Integration for Airborne Transmission Spread in Indoor Places

Abstract

The spread of viral particles as a primary cause of infection indoors is an open problem under investigation. Physical experimentation for studying infection spread in variable indoor configurations are very complex; instead, modeling and simulation provide a way to conduct the required studies in a safe environment. We present a method for modeling, simulating, and visualizing the infection risks in closed spaces. We present models to estimate the dynamics of indoor infection under different conditions. We use Cellular Discrete Event Specifications and integrate the results with Building Information Modeling.
