A model for heating and evaporation of a droplet cloud and its implementation into ANSYS Fluent

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

A model for heating and evaporation of a cloud of monocomponent droplets in air, taking into account the evolution of droplet number densities, is developed and implemented into ANSYS Fluent. Functionality testing of the new customised version of ANSYS Fluent is based on its application to the analysis of a droplet cloud in a two-phase back-step flow. It is shown that the effect of the droplet cloud needs to be taken into account when estimating the heat and mass transfer rates from the carrier phase to the droplets.
