TitleProject Research Associate
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerIIT Bombay
LocationIndia, Maharashtra, Mumbai
InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure Date* None *
Applications are invited from Indian nationals only for project position(s) as 
per the details given below for the consultancy/research project(s) under the 
Principal investigator (Name: Prof. Krishnendu Sinha), Department of Aerospace 
Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.

1. Title of Project: Ventilation CFD to determine the optimum placement of 
minimum sensors

2. Project Details: This project aims to use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) 
to determine the airflow circulation in indoor spaces and identify recirculation 
zones that trap infectious particles. Reactor Model framework-based Infectivity 
Modelling: A well-mixed room is considered a CSTR (continuous stirred 
tank reactor) model wherein the air is mixed homogeneously throughout the 
enclosed space. Using various equations such as wells-Riley equations (models’ 
risk of infection due to airborne particles) will be studied and CFD model-based 
infectivity will be determined in different zones. The different zones will 
determine the areas where the risk of infection is higher and where the risk of 
infection is lower with the existing ventilation system and how the changes in 
intervention can reduce the higher infectivity risk zones. The project has 
potential applications in controlling the spread of infectious diseases in 
indoor settings and optimizing ventilation systems.

3. Project Duration: 2 Years
