Purpose of the Study Importance in industrial ProcessesImportance in industrial Processes –Ink jet printing –Fuel sprays –Fire quenching –Chemical reaction rates Can the Process be Modelled SuccessfullyCan the Process be Modelled Successfully –Construction of a mathematical model –Should be robust and accurate

Droplet Break-Up Governed by the initial Weber numberGoverned by the initial Weber number –where a is the density of the ambient fluid, D i the initial diameter of the drop, U r the initial relative velocity between the ambient fluid and the drop and ad is the surface tension Viscous effects play no role when the Ohnesorge numberViscous effects play no role when the Ohnesorge number –Where d is the viscosity of the drop and d the density of the drop

Droplet Break-Up Modes 1.Vibrational Break-Up: 2.Bag Break-Up: 3.Bag and Stamen Break-Up: 4.Sheet Stripping: 5.Catastrophic Break-Up

Modelling the Droplet Break- Up Process Must solve a two-phase flow problemMust solve a two-phase flow problem –e.g. a rain droplet falling through air Accurately track fluid interfacesAccurately track fluid interfaces –Interface tracking algorithm Solve the Navier-Stokes EquationsSolve the Navier-Stokes Equations –Often incompressible, includes surface tension forces –Usually involves inflow and outflow boundary conditions

The Numerical Method The method must deal withThe method must deal with –Discontinuously varying fluid densities and viscosities –Severe stretching and rupture of fluid interfaces Single Domain or One-Field MethodSingle Domain or One-Field Method –Fluid variables are field variables in a single domain –Includes both bulk fluid phases and interface geometry –The interfaces represent a discontinuity in density or viscosity –Interfacial conditions become part of the governing equations –Can define these phases by a phase indicator function C, often the volume fraction

Grid Volume Fraction Volume fraction information within grid cells C 1 – blue fluid, C 2 – yellow fluid C 1 = 0 C 2 = 1 C 1 = 0 C 2 = 1 C 1 = 0.2 C 2 = 0.8 C 1 = 0.7 C 2 = 0.3 C 1 = 0.95 C 2 = 0.05 C 1 = 1 C 2 = 0 C 1 = 0.7 C 2 = 0.3 C 1 = 0.3 C 2 = 0.7

Interface Capturing Volume TrackingVolume Tracking –The interface is only implicitly tracked, it is captured –The interface is the contrast created by the difference in phase, e.g. MAC method, Marker-Particle method –Or it can be geometrically re-constructed, e.g. VOF methods SLIC, PLIC

Density and Viscosity In two-phase flow the density and viscosity fields, using C 1 +C 2 =1 with C=C 1,In two-phase flow the density and viscosity fields, using C 1 +C 2 =1 with C=C 1, are:are: Where the i and i are the constant viscosities and densities within each fluid phaseWhere the i and i are the constant viscosities and densities within each fluid phase We have used a serial mean for the density and a parallel mean for the viscosityWe have used a serial mean for the density and a parallel mean for the viscosity

Eulerian-Lagrangian Methods Makes use of aspects of both Eulerian and Lagrangian methods Particle-Mesh methods e.g. GMPPS –use an Eulerian fixed grid to store velocity and pressure information –Use Lagrangian particles to keep track of fluid phase and thereby density and viscosity

Fluid Particle Colour Each fluid phase (m) has a set of marker particles (p) located at position (x p, y p )Each fluid phase (m) has a set of marker particles (p) located at position (x p, y p ) Every marker particle of the m th set is permanently assigned a colour such thatEvery marker particle of the m th set is permanently assigned a colour such that Particles are moved with interpolated grid velocitiesParticles are moved with interpolated grid velocities Particle colours are used to update the volume fraction C through interpolation at each time stepParticle colours are used to update the volume fraction C through interpolation at each time step
