Isothermal Spherical Droplet Evaporation

Application ID: 102021

Droplet evaporation is ubiquitous in everyday life and is essential in many industrial processes, such as inkjet printing, cleaning/coating of surfaces, and phase change heat transfer.

This model demonstrates how to model phase transition by a moving exterior boundary condition using the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method. The problem is two-dimensional axisymmetric but solved in three dimensions for demonstration purpose.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
