Abstract
In this work, a conservative level-set finite-volume solver for interface-capturing is employed to perform the direct numerical simulation of Liquid Jets discharging into a quiescent air chamber. The scope is to propose a complete break-up regimes map entirely obtained from numerical simulations. The solver accounts for an adaptive mesh refinement strategy to optimize the computational resources. The numerical model is firstly validated in the context of 3D atomization by simulating the behavior...
