Monte Carlo method for physically-based drop-size distribution evolution


International audienceWe report in this paper the evolution of a physically-based drop size-distribution coupling the Maximum Entropy Formalism and the Monte Carlo method to solve the distribution equation. Deriving the discrete and continuous population balance equation, the Mass Flow Algorithm is formulated taking into account interactions between droplets via coalescence. After proposing a kernel for coalescence, we solve the time dependent drop size distribution using a Monte Carlo Method which is show to be convergent. The drops size distribution upon time shows the effect of spray droplets coalescence
