A study will be presented on the application of a tabulated chemistry technique to model fuel spray ignition. The objective is to predict correct spray combustion physics. Therefore, Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) with Flamelet Generated Manifolds (FGM) have been performed for combusting n-heptane sprays in a constant volume. This is done for Sandia’s baseline n-heptane cases. The preliminary computational results will be compared to experimental observations like spray flame structure, auto-ignition delay time and flame lift-off length.
