The Airborne Infection SEIR Model examines the time evolution of four populations in an epidemic: those who are susceptible to infection, those who have been exposed but do not yet exhibit symptoms, those who are infected and contagious, and those who have recovered from the infection. The SUSCEPTIBLE-EXPOSED-INFECTED-REMOVED (SEIR) Model shows that infection can spread throughout a population in just a matter of days. Infections and viruses can be transmitted relatively easily, or can be prevented all together if certain conditions are satisfied. This model examines the spread of infection in indoor environments and the parameters that shape its transmission.
The Airborne Infection SEIR Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed. You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the map and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
