Multi-component vapor-liquid equilibrium model for LES and application to ECN Spray A

  title={Multi-component vapor-liquid equilibrium model for LES and application to ECN Spray A},
  author={Jan Matheis and S. Hickel},
  journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics},
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 represent the coexistence of supercritical states and multicomponent subcritical two-phase states. LES results for the transcritical Spray A of the Engine Combustion Network (ECN) are found to agree very well to available experimental data. We also address well-known numerical challenges of trans- and…
