Abstract:

The major elements of an approach to the development of a more powerful spray combustion model is discussed. A model is sought that treats, in a numerically-efficient manner, unsteady, multidimensional, turbulent reacting flows with polydisperse, multicomponent sprays and properly accounts for transient droplet heating and vaporization, liquid-phase mass diffusion, and droplet drag and trajectory. Major advances are reviewed and important issues remaining for resolution are discussed. Keywords Fuels, Droplets, Vaporization, Drag, Sprays, Combustion, Flame propagation.
