A weak coupling strategy is proposed to simulate the pressurised spray without any empirical readjustment. VolumeOf Fluid is used to simulate the nozzle internal flow with cavitation and its primary atomization into ligaments. Lagrangian simulations are then used to get the spray evolution, even temporal. Large Eddy Simulations are used for these two simulations types. The coupling between both is realized by a recording and an analysis of the ligaments with local break up modelling into drops. Two test cases are presented, the second one deals with full, complex geometry, 6-holes Gasoline Direct Injection nozzle. Such approach shows a huge potential for predictionof the final spray from the nozzle geometry.
