Project Description

In this project we aim to demonstrate state of the art simulation of liquid atomization and spray formation by aerodynamic shear forces in a high Reynolds and Weber number environment. This is a problem of substantial scientific and industrial importance given the critical role played by fuel atomization on the stability and performance of combustion systems as well as of the emissions and noise from these devices. The access offered by Oak Ridge LCF is critical for the validation of our first principles computational approach against experimental measurements and to enhance the scalability of our code such that large-scale calculations are enabled that will enhance scientific understanding and will impact product development.
