Spray characteristics from multi-hole injectors intended for use in direct-injected spark-ignited engines have been
evaluated in a pressurized spray chamber. The liquid and vapor phase of the spray has been investigated using a
combination of white light volume illumination and a z-type schlieren technique. The effects of fuel pressure, nozzle
geometry, fuel type and ambient temperature on spray characteristics were investigated at an ambient pressure of
0.55 MPa and an ambient temperature of up to 300°C. For the investigated conditions, the presence of liquid fuel
was found to be a good marker for the spray tip position until the completion of the fuel evaporation process. The
presence of fuel vapor is restricted early in the injection process to the spray periphery and the region close to the
nozzle. Fewer holes and higher injection pressure increase the spray penetration, whereas the influence of ambient
temperature is small. A comparison between E85 and indolene revealed spray penetration to be similar. However,
liquid phase persisted longer in the case of E85. The governing influence appears to be not the lower boiling point of
ethanol but the higher latent heat.

Engine-Like Conditions

Experimental Common-Rail Ethanol Sprays are investigated in a high pressure vessel for pressures up to 50 bar and
temperatures up to 800 K. Mie-, Shadow- and 1-D Raman optical measurement techniques are used for the spray
investigations. The liquid and gaseous spray penetrations obtained from all experiments are compared with results
from corresponding transient numerical CFD simulations. Furthermore, measured and calculated fuel mass fractions
and temperatures of the gaseous phase are compared for one reference experiment. The agreement between
experiment and simulation is found to be very good.
Spray penetration for liquid and gas phase is discussed with respect to effects of ambient gas density and ambient
gas temperature variations.
A reference spray vessel experiment is investigated in detail. The spray model parameters in the CFD simulation are
adjusted such that the simulation results match the experimental data in terms of liquid and gaseous spray
penetration. Moreover, the experimentally obtained fuel mass fraction and the temperature of the gaseous phase are
compared to simulation data. These quantities are the determining ones for auto-ignition timing and subsequent heat
release in Diesel engine applications. Thus, capturing these quantities well is an essential prerequisite in all CFD
simulations that address Diesel engine combustion.
In addition to the reference experiment, three other cases are investigated with the spray model parameters in the
CFD simulations kept unchanged with respect to the reference case, in order to validate the predictability of the
spray models applied. It is found that these additional simulations yield very good results as well.

Measurement of Diesel Spray Impingement and Fuel Film Thickness Using Refractive
Index matching Methods

Engine Research Center
University of Wisconsin – Madison
Madison, WI 53706 USA
The spatial distribution of fuel film thickness resulting from the impingement of a diesel fuel spray on a surface
was measured in a chamber at conditions similar to early injection conditions used for low temperature diesel
combustion. The volume of the adhered fuel and radial distribution of the film thickness are presented. Fuel was
injected normal to, and at a 45° angle to the impingement surface at ambient temperatures of 353, 427 and 500 K,
with densities of 10, 25 and 50 kg/m3. Two injectors, with single-hole nozzles having diameters of 120 and 207 µm
were used. The results show that the adhered fuel film volume was strongly affected by the ambient temperature, but
was minimally affected by the chamber density and spray impingement angle. The maximum fuel film thickness and
film radius were found to increase with decreased temperature. Initial results indicate that the effect of injector
nozzle diameter was slight, with a larger diameter depositing more fuel on the surface for comparable condition.

Their analysis also reveals an exponential response function of time for the droplet to reach the surrounding gas velocity. However.2 . It is assumed that the instantaneous injection velocity affects the spray tip with an exponential response function and that the response time is the particle residence time. 20th Annual Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems. realistic injection profiles are usually time-varying and thus steady-state gas -jet theory cannot be applied directly. [11] studied the response function of a droplet to the surrounding gas velocity. There have been attempts to study non-stationary jets and sprays. Such gas-jet theorybased models have been used extensively to determine the spray-tip penetration for steady-state injections by various researchers [3. [6].

This self-similarity function can be thought of as the response function of a particle in the jet to a change in injection velocity. their results and model only apply to a sudden decrease in injection velocity from an initial constant value to a constant lower value. This Helmholtz theory is also shown to yield the well-known velocity decay rate of turbulent gas jets. and 5]. 4]. turbulent jets postulated that if the flow is non-stationary or non-steady a choice of selfsimilarity function is the exponential function.

Theoretical Convergence Characteristics of Calculations of Drop Collisions Rates
S. L. Post
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Bradley University
Peoria, IL 61625 USA
Multidimensional models that are used for engine computations must include spray sub-models when the fuel is
injected into the cylinder in liquid form. One of these spray sub-models is the droplet interaction model, which is
separated into two parts: first, calculation of a collision rate between drops, and second, calculation of the outcome
once a collision has occurred. This paper focuses on the problem of calculating the collision rate between drops
accurately. Computing the collision rate between drops or particles when they are non-uniformly distributed and
sharp gradients are present in their distribution, such as in Diesel sprays, is a challenging task. This paper analyzes
the theoretical errors that arise from the finite discretization of the spatial domain through which the drops move.
This analysis yields predictions for the errors made in collision calculations.
In many engineering applications, it is necessary to
compute the collision rate among particles or drops. In
Diesel engines the atomization of liquid fuel injected at
high velocities into a high-pressure ambient
environment results in a large number of small drops.
The standard approach [1] to modeling these sprays
involves tracking the liquid drops in a Lagrangian
frame of reference by with the gas in an Eulerian frame
of reference. This is referred to as the Lagrangian-Drop
Eulerian-Fluid (LDEF) approach. Because there are so
many drops in a typical diesel spray, a Monte Carlo
technique is used to simulate the drops, with the total
mass of liquid broken into discrete parcels. Each parcel
contains a number, typically O(1000), identical liquid
An important physical process in the near-orifice
region is collisions among the drops that result from
atomization. This collision process may lead to further
break-up of the drops or to coalescence of drops.
Hence, collisions have a significant effect on drop sizes
in the spray, which in turn affects vaporization rates and
combustion characteristics. The standard approach to
computing collision rates among drops is to assume that
the drops are uniformly distributed in the gas-phase
computational cell in the discretized space and employ
concepts from the kinetic theory of gas to estimate the
collision rates. In order to do this, the number density
of drops for every computational cell has to be
estimated. The number density is total number of drops
in the cell divided by the volume of the cell. In each
grid cell it is assumed that all of the drops in the parcels
that reside in that cell are uniformly distributed
throughout the cell. If the drops truly are uniformly
distributed in space, then the computed number density
is independent of the size of the cell, assuming that

each cell contains a statistically sufficient number of
computational parcels. The challenge with this
approach is that as the drops are formed near the
injector, sharp gradients result in the distribution of the
drops in the vicinity of the spray centerline. For
example Figure 1 illustrates a 2D computational grid
with cell sizes O(1 mm) employed to model a diesel
spray corresponding to the conditions of Siebers
experiments [2], and Figure 2 shows computed profiles
of the drop distributions in those sprays. The
assumption of uniform distribution of drops breaks
down near the spray centerline and particularly near the
injector orifice. This implies that as the size of a
computational cell near the orifice is changed, the
number density of drops in the cell would change.
As a result, it has been shown by Aneja and Abraham
[3], Subramaniam and O’Rourke [4], and Hieber [5]
that spray computations that employ the LDEF
approach do not yield converged results as the grid is
refined. Approaches to deal with this problem have
been postulated by Asheim et al. [6], Schmidt and coworkers, [7-10], Nordin [11], and Post [12,13]. But to
this point no one has quantified how much numerical
error arrives from a given grid size employed.
In this paper, a mathematical analysis of the collision
rate calculation is employed. Expressions for the
numerical error within a given grid cell, as well as for
the computational do-main as a whole are derived. The
paper closes with summary and conclusions.
As described in the previous section, in spray models,
the drops are followed in a Lagrangian frame of
reference once they are formed as a result of
In this approach, for the collision
calculation it is assumed that the drops from each parcel

University of California,
Irvine, CA 92697-3550 USA
The present study assesses modifications to the fuel preparation process (and subsequent emissions impact) in a
commercial diesel fired gas turbine system for operation on soy biodiesel fuel (B99). The influence of liquid properties and injector operation on the resulting droplet sizes and evaporation characteristics are assessed. A theoretical
analysis of plain-jet airblast atomization and subsequent spray properties at atmospheric and engine conditions is
carried out for two different plain jet airblast atomizer configurations. An adaptation to an existing empirical Sauter
mean diameter is presented which accounts for the differing fuel properties found in B99 compared to DF2. A theoretical analysis of the influence of the fuel injector operation and liquid properties on the fuel evaporation characteristics is also carried out. In order to assess the overall NOx emissions performance attained, comparisons are made
with well stirred reactor results. The theoretical and experimental findings indicate that, while it is possible to improve NOx emissions for B99 through optimization of the fuel injection process, other factors in addition to atomization contribute to the generally higher NOx emissions observed for B99. Finally, discussion of an alternative approach to improving performance is presented in which blends of ethanol and B99 are used to achieve fuel properties that result in further optimized fuel preparation and therefore potentially further improved emissions.

Towards A Robust Phenomenological Turbulent Jet-in-Crossflow Atomization Model
S. Khosla*, A. Conley, C. E. Smith
CFD Research Corporation,
Huntsville, AL 35805 USA
Jet In Crossflow (JIC) atomization models are typically based on liquid to air momentum ratio and gas Weber number. Although turbulence in a jet can significantly alter JIC atomization, the effect of turbulence is not considered
when characterizing jet breakup. In this paper, we demonstrate that commonly used injectors for augmentor applications produce high levels of turbulence in the jet, while injectors commonly used in research laboratories consists of
moderate to no turbulence in the jets. Thus, JIC models built using near laminar conditions will not produce accurate
predictions in practical applications.
In this paper, we present the beginnings of a phenomenological JIC atomization model that can account for turbulence in the jet. High fidelity VOF simulations for JIC atomization validated against high resolution, high-speed
photography will potentially be used to describe the primary and secondary breakup processes. The initial model is
developed by identifying and curve-fitting non-dimensional parameters through a wide range of experimental data.
Significant emphasis has been placed on minimizing the total number of correlations and maximizing the use of
non-dimensional parameters throughout primary and secondary atomization. The existing model is not a phenomenological model, but has the basic framework of the desired physics-based model. Future VOF simulations may fill
the gap in modeling and lead to a robust, phenomenological, turbulent JIC atomization model.
