CONVERGE includes state-of-the-art models for simulating liquid spray phenomena. In this workshop, we will describe the models in CONVERGE for liquid breakup, collision and coalescence, vaporization, drag, turbulent dispersion, and drop/wall interaction. In particular, we will discuss numerical mesh and parcel number settings for achieving grid convergence for RANS and LES simulations. This workshop will also describe CONVERGE’s VOF-spray one-way coupling option, in which CONVERGE collects detailed fluid flow information near the nozzle exit during a VOF simulation of the injector flow and then uses this information to inject parcels for Lagrangian spray calculations. Finally, in this workshop we will discuss the future of spray modeling in CONVERGE.
*This lecture does not include hands-on CONVERGE Studio practice.
