RUEDA, Aldo; TOLEDO, Miguel; RUEDA, Fernando  e  RANGEL, Rene. Numerical Investigation of the Droplet Behavior in Cascades Using a Finite Volume Method. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.3, pp.473-484. ISSN 1405-5546.

This paper describes an Eulerian/Lagrangian two-phase model for wet steam. Two-dimensional inviscid transonic cascade flow is simulated using a cell-vertex finite volume space discretization method on structured triangular mesh. A pseudo time scheme is used to march the solution to steady state. The model provides an approach for including the interaction between the liquid and gas phases for a pure fluid. The analysis consists in the application of the discrete phase model, for modeling the liquid particle flow, and the Eulerian conservation equations to the continuous phase. The investigation permits us to know the influence of parameters such as: particle diameter, flow angle and particle velocity on deposition of drops onto stator blade surfaces. These parameters are analyzed to different inlet flow angles and drop sizes in the turbine. Deposition rate was found to be strongly dependent on increasing inlet flow angle and drop size in the example computed. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of some calculations of deposition which are based on more recent theories or less simplified flow models than previously published work.
