Using high-performance computation systems, a URV research team has simulated the flow of air produced by coughing and sneezing in unprecedented detail. The results give greater insight into the characteristics of the flow produced by breathing and the capacity of infectious aerosols to disperse in the environment and remain suspended, which spreads COVID-19 and other airborne diseases

The nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB) present a promising contribution to fulfil the EU sustainable future targets. However, the construction industry that leads the development of nZEB is facing challenges to guarantee its performance. One study led by researchers from the URV in cooperation with TNO has created a diagnostic tool that uses minimal monitoring data to assess and guarantee nZEB performance
