Injector Dynamic and Nozzle Flow Features in Multiple Injection Modeling 2007-24-0038
This paper deals with the integrated modeling of a multiple injection common rail system. The aim of the numerical investigation is to capture the behavior of the multiple injections, in terms of electro-injector dynamic and nozzle flow development. In detail, the multiple injection investigation focuses on the transient phenomena of the injector, in order to evaluate their role on the definition of two aspects of the injection strategy, the fuel rate time evolution and their influence on the nozzle flow features. The model is based on the integration of two different commercial codes. In the simulations, a 0/1-D code has been used to analyze the complete injection system. The results obtained from the injection system simulation, in terms of injection needle lift, injection flow rate, pressure time evolution, have been used as boundary conditions for the 3-D CFD computation tool, in which the numerical investigation of the internal injector flow has been performed. Such an investigation is thought to highlight the exit flow features that play a significant role in the break-up process.
