Abstract: Multiphase flows such as polydisperse sprays have vital applications in many industrial processes, e.g. liquid fuel combustion, spray painting, coating and drying, evaporative cooling, agriculture spraying etc. Such flow systems are very much complex, as they involve besides the interaction between the phases also interaction among particles/droplets and between particles with the system boundary (e.g. wall). These interactions largely depend on the dispersed phase flow properties (particle/droplet size and distributions), the continuous phase flow characteristics (turbulence intensity, temperature, cross flow or parallel flow configuration, etc.), and the wall characteristics (heated wall, rough wall etc.). Focusing on the interaction between a fuel jet and combustion chamber wall it is well known that when the spray strikes the wall, it may break into smaller sizes, get evaporated, deposited or may rebound with certain velocity and size. With regard to CFD-based predictions of such flow properties the quality strongly depends on the accuracy level of the CFD models involved to address the physically interacting processes. There are many models that attempt to describe the dispersed phase flow behavior. However in this study, the Eulerian method is used for its very known advantages and designed by approximating a solution to the kinetic spray equation, a partial differential equation for the distribution function of the droplets. CFD model used here is based on a combined quadrature and sectional method also called quadrature based sectional method (QBSM).
General Note: The International Conference on Multiphase Flow (ICMF) first was held in Tsukuba, Japan in 1991 and the second ICMF took place in Kyoto, Japan in 1995. During this conference, it was decided to establish an International Governing Board which oversees the major aspects of the conference and makes decisions about future conference locations. Due to the great importance of the field, it was furthermore decided to hold the conference every three years successively in Asia including Australia, Europe including Africa, Russia and the Near East and America. Hence, ICMF 1998 was held in Lyon, France, ICMF 2001 in New Orleans, USA, ICMF 2004 in Yokohama, Japan, and ICMF 2007 in Leipzig, Germany. ICMF-2010 is devoted to all aspects of Multiphase Flow. Researchers from all over the world gathered in order to introduce their recent advances in the field and thereby promote the exchange of new ideas, results and techniques. The conference is a key event in Multiphase Flow and supports the advancement of science in this very important field. The major research topics relevant for the conference are as follows: Bio-Fluid Dynamics; Boiling; Bubbly Flows; Cavitation; Colloidal and Suspension Dynamics; Collision, Agglomeration and Breakup; Computational Techniques for Multiphase Flows; Droplet Flows; Environmental and Geophysical Flows; Experimental Methods for Multiphase Flows; Fluidized and Circulating Fluidized Beds; Fluid Structure Interactions; Granular Media; Industrial Applications; Instabilities; Interfacial Flows; Micro and Nano-Scale Multiphase Flows; Microgravity in Two-Phase Flow; Multiphase Flows with Heat and Mass Transfer; Non-Newtonian Multiphase Flows; Particle-Laden Flows; Particle, Bubble and Drop Dynamics; Reactive Multiphase Flows
