This dataset accompanies the paper titled “Experimental study and CFD validation cases for airborne transmission in enclosed spaces” by providing essential information necessary for the effective utilization of the study's results. The paper explores the role of ventilation in mitigating airborne transmission, a topic extensively studied using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. However, due to the scarcity of validation cases, research in this domain often struggles to establish confidence in obtained results and conclusions. Our study addresses this gap by introducing a simple yet reliable experimental method that replicates real-life scenarios of virus transmission between humans. A highly detailed dataset was collected, organized, and is now available to serve as a validation resource for fellow researchers. This dataset comprises the Word document 'SupplementaryMaterial.docx,' which offers comprehensive instructions on efficiently utilizing the provided measurement data. Excel file 'DataRepository.xlsx,' containing all the conducted measurements, and the "RoomGeometry" .scdoc and .stp files are geometry files used in the CFD simulations.
