Paper Title:
A Numerical Study of the Effect of Injection Velocity on Fuel Droplets Sizing in a Three-Dimensional Side-Dump Combustor
  Abstract

The effects of injection velocity on propulsive droplets sizing and efficient mass fraction in a three dimensional side-dump combustor with dual opposite curved side-inlet duct are numerically investigated in the present paper. The mass of fuel vapor inside the flammability limit is named efficient mass fraction. The air flow comes from side-inlet ducts into the cylindrical combustor and four nozzles which are located in the top of the cylinder have the duties of fuel injection. The injection velocity is varied as 20, 40, 60 and 80 [m/s] respectively to examine its effects on propulsive droplets sizing and efficient mass fraction which provides worthwhile information for the combustor design work. As well, by increasing entrance air flow velocity from 35 to 100 and 280[m/s] correspondingly, these computations are repeated. To fulfill the calculations a modified version of KIVA-3V code which is a transient, three-dimensional, multiphase, multicomponent code for the analysis of chemically reacting flows with sprays, is used.
