Abstract: The problem of turbulent jet sprays of n-dodecane injected into a quiescent nitrogen gas chamber was investigated as a test case for the incorporation of a multiphysics Large-Eddy Simulation solver known as LESLIE into the US Army Research Laboratory's High Performance Computing system. Preliminary simulations were performed on the Excalibur supercomputer to test the capability of the solver to simulate subcritical turbulent jet sprays. The solver was chosen for its ability to make use of alternative models that are capable of modeling multicomponent fluids such as n-dodecane. The long-term goal of this research is to incorporate these models into future simulations of turbulent jet sprays and develop a predictive theory for comparison to measurements in the laboratory of turbulent diesel sprays.
