15.10 Secondary Breakup Model Theory

ANSYS FLUENT offers two droplet breakup models: the Taylor analogy breakup (TAB) model and the wave model. The TAB model is recommended for low-Weber-number injections and is well suited for low-speed sprays into a standard atmosphere. For Weber numbers greater than 100, the wave model is more applicable. The wave model is popular for use in high-speed fuel-injection applications. Details for each model are provided below.
