Abstract

In this work, a numerical study has been performed to evaluate the fuel spray of diesel, dimethyl ether (DME) and its mixture using CFD code OpenFoam. This study uses a general method, based on simulating fuel sprays injected into a constant volume vessel. Calculations results are presented as profiles of diameter (MD) and temperature of fuel droplets as function of fuel type. The results have shown that the diameter of fuel droplet decreased as the fraction of DME in the mixture is higher. Fuel properties affected the atomization and evaporation process. The SMD increased with viscosity and the evaporation rate of fuel spray increased with fuel volatility.
