Progress in Diesel spray modelling highly depends on a better knowledge of the instantaneous injection velocity and of the hydraulic section at the exit of each injection hole. Additionally a better identification of the mechanisms which cause fragmentation is needed. This necessitates to begin with a precise computation of the two-phase flow which...


... The widely-applied sharp interface capturing method Volume of Fluid (VOF) technique [36,43,46,47] has been chosen to capture the liquid/gas interface. The model is similar to the homogeneous model, where a single momentum equation is calculated for all phases that interact using the VOF model. ...
