Abstract

The main ideas of the model for multi-component droplet heating and evap- oration, based on the analytical solutions to the heat conduction and species diusion equations in the liquid phase, and its implementation into ANSYS Fluent CFD software are described. The model is implemented into this soft- ware via User-De ned Functions (UDF). The predictions of ANSYS Fluent with the newly implemented model are veri ed against the results predicted by the previously developed in-house research code for droplets comprising of a mixture of ethanol and acetone evaporating and cooled down in ambient air
