The use of transported Probability Density Function(PDF) methods allows a single model to compute the autoignition, premixed mode and diffusion flame of diesel combustion under engine-like conditions [1,2]. The Lagrangian particle based transported PDF models have been validated across a wide range of conditions [2,3]. Alternatively, the transported PDF model can also be formulated in the Eulerian framework. The Eulerian PDF is commonly known as the Eulerian Stochastic Fields (ESF) model. When the same chemical mechanism and micro-mixing model were used, both ESF model and its Lagrangian counterpart generated similar results. The principal motivation for ESF compared to Lagrangian particle based PDF is the relative ease of implementation of the former into Eulerian computational fluid dynamics(CFD) codes . Several works have attempted to implement the ESF model for the simulations of diesel spray combustion under engine-like conditions.The current work aims to further evaluate the performance of the ESF model in this application, with an emphasis on examining the convergence of the number of stochastic fields, nsf. Five test conditions, covering both the conventional diesel combustion and low temperature combustion regimes, are used. The associated ambient conditions and injection characteristics are provided in Table 1.
