Computational Method

This page contains resources and tools used for computational modeling of sprays.

Modeling Standards have been identified to describe jet pentration, liquid length, and other parameters in a consistent way.

The Musculus and Kattke model (Musculus, 2009; Pickett, 2011) is a one-dimensional jet model with a variable profile approximation for radial mixing and velocity distribution. The model may be used to estimate mixing and penetration of fuel sprays with variable rate of injection. Matlab-based files are available to downloaded. In addition, an Excel file is available for steady injection rate approximations.
