Abstract: Gas-liquid flows exist within many engineering devices including fuel injectors, wave energy extraction devices, fire suppression systems, and PEM fuel cells. Many of these flows are challenging to explore experimentally. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, that leverage massively-parallel computational resources, offer an alternative and useful approach to advance our understanding. In this talk, I will present an overview of the challenges of simulate gas-liquid flows, details on a numerical method designed to work well near the gas-liquid interface, and recent work on extracting the break-up process of an atomizing jet and storing the data in an easily accessible graph database.
