Large Eddy Simulation of diesel injector opening with a two phase cavitation model

Article English OPEN
Koukouvinis, P.; Gavaises, M.; Li, J.; Wang, L.;

In the current paper, indicative results of the flow simulation during the opening phase of a Diesel injector are presented. In order to capture the complex flow field and cavitation structures forming in the injector, Large Eddy Simulation has been employed, whereas co... View more
