A numerical method was considered to calculate spray flame structure and emissions characteristics. The turbulence fluctuation was predicted using k-e-g and algebraic mixing-length-hypothesis (mlh) turbulence models. The numerical method was evaluated using a set of available experimental data. It is shown that this theoretical model predicts the data well in the near nozzle region and the predictions improve quantitatively along the axial distance. In comparing the turbulence models, the k-e-g model provides a better result for the varying-density flow of spray combustion.
