Numerical Calculation of Spray Mixing Process in a D.I. Diesel Engine and Comparison with Experiments 950853

Three dimensional computational model has been developed to predict the macroscopic behavior of the fuel spray in D. I. diesel engines. The model was based on the KIVA-II code with modification of some submodels that it can deal with the observed phenomena such as liquid column near the nozzle tip and spray impingement on a wall. Firstly, this model was verified by comparing the prediction with the experimental results in a constant volume vessel. Secondly with application to a D.I. diesel engine, the detailed behavior of the spray in a combustion chamber was revealed. Moreover, the engine performance under different spray angles were discussed with the prediction of this model.
