Abstract

Abstract—We report in this paper the evolution of a physically based drop size distribution coupling the Maximum Entropy Formalism and the Monte Carlo method to solve the coagulation equation. Using the discrete or continuous population balance equation, the Mass Flow Algorithm is formulated taking into account interactions between droplets via coalescence. After proposing a kernel for coalescence, we solve the time dependent drop size distribution equation using a Monte Carlo method which is convergent. The evolution of the drop size distribution shows the effect of spray droplets coalescence.
