  Project summary

Project name:

Experimental and numerical investigation of of atomization at elevated pressure 

Project acronym: EMR4_2Vergasung_2 
Project duration: 2016-2019 
Financial support by: Helmholtz Gemeinschaft ( 
In the framework of the Helmholtz programme EMR in subtopic 4.2 "gasification" in the project "Experimental and numerical investigation of atomization at elevated pressure" models for the gasification of a model slurry atmospheric and elevated pressure are developed. For this purpose numerical simulations of jet break-up are performed for twin-fluid atomization at elevated pressure are performed. For the simulation of the two phase flow the volume-of-fluid (VOF) method is engaged together with Large-Eddy simulation (LES). Validation of the two phase model is done in co-operation with the Institute of Fuel Technology where experimental data at elevated pressure are acquired.
