Séminaire IUSTI

Spectacular Voyage of Droplets : COVID-19 and beyond

Orateur : Saptarshi Basu – IIS Bengaluru, Inde

Abstract : I will provide an account of the interesting dynamics exhibited by droplets at multiple length and time scales in COVID-19. In my talk I will introduce how spread of COVID can be through respiratory droplets and fomites. In this part, I will provide a detailed exposition of how respiratory droplet dynamics can be mated with pandemic model to provide a first principle insights into infection spread rate. We will show through experiments using surrogate fluids, such models can be experimentally verified rigorously. Subsequently I will show how fomites form and how the virion are embedded in the crystal network using both contact free as well as sessile droplets. I will also provide some insights on how impinging respiratory droplets penetrate through fibrous networks like masks.

Date et lieu : le vendredi 14 octobre à 14h00, salle 259 - IUSTI
