In this study, we developed an integrated simulation procedure for prediction of concentration of contaminant exposure using a multi-nesting method connecting building space, a Virtual Manikin, and bronchus airway in humans. On the basis of this numerical simulation, detailed information on the unsteady spacial distribution of contaminant concentration, the breathing concentration of infectious contaminant, and the non-uniform distribution of contaminant deposition in nasal airway could be provided for designers of indoor environments in the design stage and also for residents. Here, we demonstrate the application of this integrated multi-nesting approach for targeting a waiting space in a university hospital.
