The present work implements a compressible Volume of Fluid (VOF) – Lagrangian Particle Tracking (LPT)
coupled solver in OpenFOAM and utilizes it to simulate a liquid jet in crossflow (LJICF) numerically. This
methodology helps accurately predict a complex primary breakup in the Eulerian framework and the secondary
atomization of spherical droplets using a computationally efficient LPT method. More details can be found in Bhatia et al. (2023).
