The evaporating process of a non-reacting spray is studied numerically using an Eulerian-Lagrangian framework. The case is simulated using Large Eddy Simulation (LES) where all the large scale structures of the flow are well resolved, but the subgrids scales must be modeled. Although LES has been widely used for modeling combustion since late 80’s, the application of LES to combustion problems where the fuel is injected in liquid phase, i.e. in IC-Engines, is a relatively new field and still n...
