Initially sub-cooled liquid flashing flow CFD modeling, closure parameters for a non-symmetric interfacial area density formulation

Abstract : A bubble to droplet transition non-symmetric interfacial area density formulation was developed for flash boiling nozzles CFD modeling. This formulation is used in a two fluid Euler-Euler modeling with a thermal phase change model. The regime transition formulation is based on the number of bubbles density and number of droplet density values. The first affects mainly the flow regime close to the nozzle throat and the second parameter affects mainly the flow close to the outlet. The physical factors affecting the calibration values of these parameters are analyzed in this paper with the aim of defining appropriate closure models. The analysis is done using experimental data available in literature. The comparison is done on the mass flow rate and the nozzle outlet velocity. It appears that the number of bubbles density is related to the inlet sub-cooling conditions and that the number of droplets density is affected by the outlet pressure and Reynolds number.
