The role of a split injection strategy in the mixture formation and combustion of diesel spray: A large-eddy simulation

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


The role of a split injection in the mixture formation and combustion characteristics of a diesel spray in an engine-like condition is investigated. We use large-eddy simulations with finite rate chemistry in order to identify the main controlling mechanism that can potentially improve the mixture quality and reduces the combustion emissions. It is shown that the primary effect of the split injection is the reduction of the mass of the fuel-rich region where soot precursors can form.

Furthermore, we investigate the interaction between different injections and explain the effects of the first injection on the mixing and combustion of the second injection. Results show that the penetration of the second injection is faster than that of the first injection. More importantly, it is shown that the ignition delay time of the second injection is much shorter than that of the first injection. This is due to the residual effects of the ignition of the first injection which increases the local temperature and maintains a certain level of combustion some intermediates or radical which in turn boosts the ignition of the second injection.
