    Abstract

    A potential novel application for electrically charged (water) spray is to improve cooling efficiency and reduce moisture loss in food chilling warehouses. In this paper we work toward a numerical (CFD) model that can be used to investigate the viability of this application. We build a simplified model which considers the spray droplets as inert particles and compare simulation results with data from literature. This model is then extended to include the effects of evaporation, which plays an important role in cooling and heat transfer.
