A mathematical model of a large-scale spray cooling system is described. The continuity and energy equations are developed for a cellular model representing a single spray in a system of sprays. The equations are solved using a finite-difference solution along a drop trajectory for both water and air parameters. The results of the cellular analysis are incorporated into a system model in which the interaction between sprays for both the water and air is considered. The model was used to simulate existing systems employing multiple rows of sprays, and the results of the calculations compare well with the available data.
