6. Dr Chang Wei KANG

The Representative speaker of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) Singapore Chapter.

Topic: Dispersion of Evaporating Cough Droplets in Tropical Environment







Dr KANG Chang Wei is a Senior Scientist and Deputy Director of the Fluid Dynamic Department, Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) in A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research). He co-leads the department to pre-position, steer and strengthen department strategic direction, as well as mentor and groom talents. He is also the Innovation Lead for Green Technology for Marine, Offshore, Oil & Gas (MOOG) to promote cross-cutting initiatives that integrate IHPC competencies and department strengths in the field of MOOG sector. Over 15 years of working experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for research and industry, he led and/or involved in numerous projects in the field of green shipping (e.g. hull form optimisation, emission control, ballast water treatment), manufacturing process (e.g. thermal spray, cold spray, shot peening) and sustainability (e.g. data centre, renewables, aquaculture). Specially for this year, he is leading a team of computational scientists with fluid dynamics expertise to develop advanced computational modelling of airflow and airborne droplets dispersion. The team has developed, verified and used the model to understand how droplet in-flight characteristics and their final destination are affected by a range of factors and interdependent interactions. The scientific outcomes will be shared in the talk.
