  • Development of filtration systems for air cleaning from nanoparticles, organic admixtures and bacteria with the help of numerical simulations

    The project was a cooperation of a group of applied mathematicians with the Russian company Aeroservice for the development and optimization of new photocatalytic filter systems for air cleaning of nanoparticles and organic substances with the help of mathematical simulation tools. For the simulation of aerosol transport in the filter made of polypropylene fibers, which is used in hospitals or airports, e.g., mathematical models and efficient solution algorithms had to be developed. These allow on the one hand to take stochastic components into account, as the heterogeneous conductivity distribution in the filter. On the other hand these methods were coupled with highly accurate computation schemes as mixed finite element methods, which guarantee local mass conservation for the transport processes. The design parameters of real experiments can be optimized with the help of such simulation tools and their sensitivity with respect to filter efficiency analysed. Among the used methods are particle filtration in porous media, based on the Darcy equation, and coupled Eulerian and Lagrangeian simulation of transport processes, including Monte Carlo approaches with given filter geometries.
