A coupled Lagrangian-Eulerian framework to model droplet to film interaction with heat transfer
Adeniyi, Akinola A. (2015) A coupled Lagrangian-Eulerian framework to model droplet to film interaction with heat transfer. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
A droplet to film interaction modelling Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technique is presented in this work. The eventual target application is an aeroengine bearing chamber where oil is used to lubricate and cool the bearings and the bearing chamber walls. Inside the chamber, the oil is found as jets/filaments, film and as droplets in the highly rotational environment. Of particular interest in this work is the formation of the continuous film from the droplets. Spray-film is another relevant application with droplets forming film as it cools the wall.
