Wall Film Dynamics Modeling for Impinging Sprays in Engines 2004-01-0099

This paper proposes a film dynamics model for liquid film resulting from fuel spray impinging on a wall surface. It is based on a thin film assumption and uses numerical particles to represent the film to be compatible with the particle spray models developed previously. The Lagrangian method is adopted to govern the transport of the film particles. A new, statistical treatment was introduced of the momentum exchange between the impinging spray and the wall film to account for the directional distribution of the impinging momentum. This model together with the previously published models for outgoing droplets constitutes a complete description of the spray wall impingement dynamics. For model validation, films resulting from impinging sprays on a flat surface with different impingement angles were calculated and the results were compared with the corresponding experimental measurements. Detailed comparison of film shape evolution and film thickness was made and good agreement was obtained. The models were then applied to engine simulations to demonstrate their capability in predicting the spray wall interaction in a port fuel injection engine.
