Abstract

KIVA3, developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, is a powerful and robust computer program for numerical modeling of multi-dimensional gas- spray flows, that uses the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) techniques for the continuous gas phase, and the particle tracking method for spray droplets. In this paper, the KIVA3 algorithm is modified and extended, and new solution procedures and equations for temperature and pressure are proposed to provide for the simulation of droplet-vapor flows using realistic properties. The KIVA3 code is modified accordingly, and a simple model for droplet evaporation into its own vapor is implemented in the code. The spray cooling of vapor flow inside a
