FUEL SPRAY TRAJECTORY AND DISPERSION IN A DI DIESEL COMBUSTION CHAMBER

The trajectory and dispersion of a fuel spray vapourising in a combustion chamber are of importance in the mixture formation and combustion of a direct injection (DI) diesel engine. The paper describes experiments and modelling of the spray, of both swirling gas flow and wall impingement, under simulated conditions. A simplified computational model was developed to describe the spray trajectory and vapour dispersion in the DI diesel combustion chamber. The model includes the effects of the breakup on the trajectory, vapourization, gas flow and dispersion of the fuel vapour. For the covering abstract see IRRD 865952.
