## Fuel Injection inside a Chamber 2-D CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent Training

The simulation is about fuel injection in a 2D chamber via ANSYS Fluent. In this project, a two-dimensional cylindrical chamber is designed. Fuel flow from the center and airflow from the outside into the chamber.

A Discrete Phase Model must be used to define fuel injection, and an injection process must be defined from the central part of the chamber. The airflow inside the chamber is continuous, and the fuel flow enters the chamber discretely.

Thus, the solution perspective changes from Eulerian to Lagrangian by creating an interaction between discrete particles and a continuous medium. The fuel material is injected surface type in the form of inert particles and has a velocity of 1 m.s-1 and a diameter of 0.0002 m, injected in 0 s to 1 s.

To define the boundary conditions, the velocity boundary condition for airflow is used; So that air enters the chamber at a speed of 0.2 m.s-1. The modeling is unsteadily (Transient), and the time step is equivalent to 0.002 s.

## Geometry & Mesh

The present geometry is designed in a 2D model via Design Modeler. The computational zone is the interior of a chamber that includes an airflow inlet and a fuel inlet.

The mesh of the present model has been done via ANSYS Meshing. Mesh is structured, and the number of production cells equals 9211.

## Fuel Injection inside a 2D Chamber Results

After calculation, 2D contours related to velocity and pressure, and DPM concentration are obtained. The contours show that The velocity and pressure in the fuel inlet section are higher than in other zones because it is injected into the space inside the chamber at a higher speed.

Also, a particle track related to the discrete phase model has been obtained in the chamber’s interior, which shows how the discrete phase is dispersed and its impact from the continuous airflow.

The simulation is performed in 2 s, and the discrete phase propagation process occurs in its initial 1 s. Thus, the discrete phase concentration contour and the discrete particle sequence show that the desired discrete particles are directed to the output port of the chamber over time.

3. Elroy Olson

The use of a Pressure-Based solver and a Coupled Pressure-Velocity coupling in the fuel injection simulation seems very interesting. Can you explain the reason behind choosing these specific methods for this scenario?

• MR CFD Support

The Pressure-Based solver is suitable for incompressible and mildly compressible flows, frequently encountered in fuel injection simulations. Using a Coupled Pressure-Velocity coupling method is preferred for steady flows as it solves the momentum and pressure equations simultaneously, allowing for faster convergence and more accurate results in reactions like fuel dispersion within the chamber. These methods provide a balanced approach for dealing with the fluid interactions and the continuous-discrete phase coupling inherent in fuel injection scenarios.

8. Alice Franecki

I found the detailed description of the boundary conditions very helpful in understanding the setup. However, could you explain if the REFLECT boundary condition on the walls affects the distribution of the fuel particles significantly?

• MR CFD Support

Yes, the REFLECT boundary condition on the walls can significantly affect the distribution of the fuel particles. This condition causes the particles to bounce back off the walls, which can impact the overall flow and distribution of the fuel particles within the chamber. The specific effects would depend on various factors such as the velocity of the particles, the angle of incidence at which they hit the wall, and the properties of the wall material in terms of reflectivity.

9. Danika Bode

I’m truly fascinated by the approach taken for the interaction of discrete particles with a continuous medium. However, could you please clarify for me if the boundaries for fuel injection and air inflow have different conditions or do they operate under the same principles?

• MR CFD Support

Yes, the fuel injection and air inflow have distinctly differentiated boundary conditions according to their specific roles in the simulation. For the fuel injection, we deploy a ‘Velocity Inlet’ with a velocity magnitude of 1 m/s for the discreetly entering fuel particles. Conversely, for the air inflow, a slower ‘Velocity Inlet’ is applied, with a velocity magnitude of 0.2 m/s, to represent the continuous flow of air into the chamber. The discrete phase boundary conditions reflect this difference, ensuring fuel particles efficiently interact with the air within the simulation environment.

12. Olen Walsh Sr.

This simulation seems incredibly detailed. Could you explain how turbulence is managed within this 2-D chamber scenario?

• MR CFD Support

The turbulence within the 2-D chamber is managed using the k-omega turbulence model. This statistical model handles turbulence by solving two transport equations, one for the turbulence kinetic energy (k) and the other for the specific dissipation rate (omega, ω), to provide a detailed description of the turbulent flow. The interaction of the continuous airflow with the injected fuel particles and any resulting turbulent eddies are accounted for by this model, enabling a realistic simulation of the dispersion of the fuel within the chamber.

13. Mrs. Minnie Jerde IV

The tutorial seems comprehensive, but could you explain if the fuel particle sequence is visualized at different time steps, and how can one interpret these visual results?

• MR CFD Support

In the tutorial, the fuel particle track reflecting the Discrete Phase Model is indeed visualized at different time steps, showing the path these discrete particles take as they are influenced by the continuous airflow inside the chamber. To interpret these visual results, you’d analyze how the particles distribute and propagate over time, observing their path-lines and their interactions, such as collisions with the chamber wall or their escape through the outlet, providing insights into the injection efficiency and mixing processes.

14. Miss Ernestine Daugherty

I’m amazed at how detailed the results are! Were any particular challenges addressed when modeling the interaction between the discrete particles and continuous phase?

• MR CFD Support

Thank you for your kind feedback! The main challenge in modeling the interaction between the discrete particles and the continuous phase lies in accurately capturing the momentum exchange between them. With computational models like the Discrete Phase Model employed in this simulation, we closely approximate physical behaviors such as drag, turbulence modulation, and heat transfer to reflect real-world reactions. Appropriate numerical techniques, such as proper discretization methods for momentum and precise time-stepping, are critical for capturing such interactions. We strive to refine our models continually to ensure realistic and robust simulation outcomes.

17. Rhiannon Koss

I’m fascinated by the interplay between the continuous airflow and the fuel’s discrete phase. Can you describe how the discrete phase particles in the chamber evolve over time during the simulation?

• MR CFD Support

In this simulation, particles are initially introduced at a specific velocity and then interact with the continuous airflow in the chamber. Over time, the particles disperse throughout the chamber-track results show the particle paths and how the airflow influences their trajectories. Eventually, the particles are directed towards the outlet of the chamber due to the airflow’s velocity pattern and gravitational forces acting on them. During the simulation, visual results show the dispersion pattern and particle concentration in the chamber at different timestamps, providing insights into the particle’s evolution.
