This study aims to investigate a liquid jet in a crossflow using numerical models. The geometry and flow conditions are based on previous experimental studies. While the numerical formulation using the Euler-Lagrange method. The overall model can be described as Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes, two-way coupling gas-liquid coupling, and 2nd-order spatial accuracy. Using this approach it was found that the primary and secondary breakup modes were captured using numerically solved via the Taylor Analogy Breakup model. In general, the overall predictions indicate good correlation to the experiments.
