Fluid Injection (Volume of Fluid)

Fluid injections are common in all kinds of products used daily. One common example are the fuel injectors used in internal combustion engines.  ​Simple spray bottles used for cleaning products are another type of fluid injection.

For this simulation, a fluid is injected a right angle into a duct with filled air moving at 60 m/s. The two species are tracked using a volume of fluid method in conjunction with a dispersed phase modeling technique. The combination of these two methods is a resource efficient way of resolving the fluid interfaces and converting them into dispersed particles once the "chunks" have become smaller than the grid size.

In addition to these techniques, an automated mesh adaptation method was also used to locally refine the fluid interface as it moved through the domain.
