Abstract

The crew members in a spacecraft experience exceptional working and living conditions which may adversely affect the health of the astronauts and make them more vulnerable to microbial exposures. In the BIOSMHARS project a CFD model was developed to predict airborne bioaerosol dispersion in spacecraft environment. The model was validated with air flow field and aerosol measurements. Comparisons with experiments showed reasonable agreement between calculations and laboratory measurements.
