We present a novel framework for high-fidelity simulations of inert and reacting sprays at transcritical conditions with highly accurate and computationally efficient models for complex real-gas effects in high-pressure environments, especially for the hybrid subcritical/supercritical mode of evaporation during the mixing of fuel and oxidizer. The high-pressure jet disintegration is modeled using a diffuse interface method with multiphase thermodynamics, which combines multi-component real… 


Supercritical and Transcritical Real-Fluid Mixing in Diesel Engine Applications
Abstract : A numerical framework for simulating the mixing of supercritical and transcritical fluids with large density ratios is presented. The accurate and robust modeling of real-fluid effects on
Multi-component vapor-liquid equilibrium model for LES and application to ECN Spray A
We present and evaluate a detailed multi-species two-phase thermodynamic equilibrium model for large-eddy simulations (LES) of liquid-fuel injection and mixing at high pressure. The model can
Large-Eddy Simulation of Coaxial LN2/GH2 Injection at Trans- and Supercritical Conditions
Large-eddy simulations are carried out for the coaxial injection of liquid nitrogen and preheated hydrogen at supercritical pressures. The conditions are similar to that in typical liquid-propellant
