Default fuel injection

Hey!!

I wanna simulate an injection of fuel(Dodecane(L)) into a high pressure cell. I wanna have a look to the length of the injected fuel jet and to the diameter and velocity of the fuel droplets.

It's an Lagrangian Multi-Phase spray injection with atomization.The Atomization model is the "Huh-Model", the "MPI-2" is the nozzle model. Heat, Mass and Momentum Transfer are Standard with 0 for mass coef. and 1 for the slip factor.

there is one inlet and one pressure boundary created. I wanna simulate pressures between 1e+05 and 100e+05Pa. That I can see how the pressure influences the length of my jet and the velocity and diameter of my parcels

So, the problem is that the length of the jet is still constant. Doesn't matter if the pressure in the cell is initialized to 1e+5Pa or to 500e+5Pa. So, what's wrong with my simulation?

I'm running the code of version 3.26.

Maybe you've an idea;-) Thanks a lot.

Johannes

P.S. I'm a student from Germany, so sorry for my bad english ;-)

Hi Johannes,

Are you using RANS or LES? Also, when you say length of your jet, do you mean the liquid jet, or the gas jet?

HEY Kian, i mean the length of the liquid jet (the length of the fuel jet). What's RANS or LES?

Thank you very much.

Johannes

RANS = Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes equations, LES = Large Eddy Simulation, they are two ways of modeling turbulence...two radically different approach.
Try to look at the cfd wiki for more info
For the injection problem, do you get the correct pressure (the pressure you want) in the injection chamber? Have you verified that?
Regards

hey!

ok, than i use RANS!

I get definitely the right pressure in the chamber.

try tp find sth. in the WIKI.

thanks, Johannes

Now the next question is how do you calculate the length of the liquid jet? By looking at the volume fraction? or do you look at the droplets directly? What is the temperature in the chamber? It could be that evaporation is very dominant in your case.

Hello Johannes,

Although I am not familiar with star, my first guess is that you are doing an incompressible simualtion. In that case, the results do not depend on the actual level of the pressure, but just on the pressure gradient. If so, both initializations should lead to the same results.

regards
