  Full Text
In this paper, we report a numerical study of the jet breakup and spray formation in a diesel engine by the Front Tracking method. We model a mixed vapor-liquid region through a heterogeneous model with dynamic vapor bubble insertion. On the liquid/vapor interface, a phase transition problem is solved numerically.
