Abstract

A reference spray combustion facility has been constructed for the purpose of providing benchmark data to validate multiphase combustion models. The baseline case of the database corresponds to a methanol spray flame. The characterization of the inlet combustion air, which is the emphasis of this paper, represents the final series of measurements to complete the baseline case. The combustion air was characterized using particle image velocimetry (PIV) and a five-hole pitot probe. The experimental data is compared to the predictions of simulations utilizing two turbulence models, the standard k-epsilon model and the renormalized group theory k-epsilon model.
