Modeling and Simulation of Thin Liquid Films Formed by Spray-Wall Interaction 960627
A mathematical model of formation and transport of liquid films, incorporating a droplet-wall impaction model and exchange mechanisms with the gas-phase, has been developed and incorporated into the STAR-CD computational fluid dynamics code. It has been applied to a test case representation of the multi-point fuel injection in four stroke SI engines. The results indicate that the major features of droplet impaction and film development are reproduced by the model. The qualitative agreement with data in the region of spray impaction is good.
