## Fuel Injector CFD Simulation, Three-Phase Flow, ANSYS Fluent Tutorial

This simulation is about a Fuel Injector via ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

In general, a fuel injector is a system of ducting and nozzles used to direct the flow of a high-pressure fluid so that a lower-pressure fluid is entrained in the jet and carried through a duct to a region of higher pressure. It is a fluid-dynamic pump with no moving parts except a valve to control inlet flow.

A steam injector is a typical application of the principle used to deliver cold water to a boiler against its pressure, using its own live or exhaust steam, replacing any mechanical pump.

In this project, a three-phase flow fuel injector has been simulated. This mixture consists o liquid, air, and vapor. The liquid will enter the computational zone through the injector at the velocity of 20m/s, and a jet flow has been formed inside.

The geometry of the present model is drawn by Gambit software. The geometry of this model consists of a combustion chamber, including a fuel injector and an air entrance.

The model is then meshed by Gambit software. The model mesh is Structured, and 932107 cells have been created.

## Fuel Injector Method

In this simulation, three fluids are used in the computational zone. These three phases include air, liquid, and steam.

Then the multiphase model is used. Since the separation boundary between the phases is unclear, the mixture model is used. In this multiphase model, the phases are completely mixed. Air is defined as the primary phase, and vapor and liquid as the secondary phase.

## Fuel Injector Result

After simulation, the contours of pressure, velocity, and mass fraction of liquid, air, and vapor are obtained. The contours indicate that the liquid flow enters the combustion chamber at high speed and pressure and then spreads completely inside this space.

The contour comparison of each phase of the mixture confirms that the multiphase flow modeling has been performed correctly.

I found the tutorial very insightful! I’m curious about how the multiphase mixture model accounts for the interaction between the liquid, air, and vapor. Could you elaborate on that?

• MR CFD Support

In the mixture model used for this Fuel Injector CFD Simulation, interactions between the liquid, air, and vapor are calculated based on shared pressure and velocity fields. The phases are assumed to be fully interpenetrating and the momentum exchange is calculated considering drag forces and turbulent dispersion forces within the mixture. The continuous phase (air) carries the dispersed phases (liquid and vapor), and relative velocities are accounted for to simulate mixing and dispersion adequately.

3. Taryn Kutch

I’m really impressed with the results of this simulation! It appears that the different phases interact in a well-defined manner. Can you provide some insights on how the mixing of the liquid, air, and vapor was simulated accurately considering their differences in properties?

• MR CFD Support

We’re thrilled to hear that you’re impressed with our Fuel Injector simulation! The accurate simulation of the mixing process between the liquid, air, and vapor phases was achieved using the mixture model within ANSYS Fluent. This approach allows us to simulate the interaction between phases when their separation boundary isn’t sharply defined. The differing properties of each phase are taken into account through the definition of individual phase properties and interaction laws. This enables an accurate representation of the flow behavior for each phase and their influence on one another as they move through the injector and into the combustion chamber.

I was truly impressed with the detail in the CFD simulation for the Fuel Injector focused on a Three-Phase Flow. The complexity captured in the interplay between liquid, air, and vapor phases is commendable. It’s clear that a significant amount of work and expertise went into creating this accurate representation of a fuel injector system.
