Work Package 4: Experimental and Modelling Studies of Fuel Injection Systems

Objectives

  • To develop and apply both experimental and computational techniques to the study of fuel injection systems for large engines.
  • To develop advanced laser optical methods for characterizing in-nozzle flow together with the near-nozzle spray flow field. Furthermore, this gained knowledge is planned to be used to enable visualization of sprays inside the MDT-CPH T50ME-X test engine.
  • To develop CFD tools for describing the fuel injection system. One tool to be developed will predict thedischarge coefficient for individual atomizer nozzle holes. The CFD models will also be developed such that they are applicable for optimization of other components in the fuel injection system.
