  • A model for the three-dimensional direct numerical simulation of evaporating, deforming droplets in incompressible flow is presented. It is based on the volume-of-fluid method and is therefore capable of capturing very strong deformations. The evaporation rate is computed based on the vapour mass fraction and the PLIC reconstruction of the surface. Emphasis is put on the correct calculation of the velocities of the gaseous and liquid phase at the interface which is very important for cases with… CONTINUE READING
