Impulsively Generated Incompressible Two-Phase Flow and the Asai Thermal Ink-jet Model

Abstract : A widespread model of thermal ink-jet actuation prescribes the pressure of the expanding bubble as a rapidly decreasing function of time, this being taken as a finite version of a Dirac impulse with only the integral with respect to time mattering. Here it is shown that the impulse is actually easier to treat numerically than the bounded approximation and an implementation in OpenFOAM is described; however, solutions so obtained reveal that the flow does depend on the timescale over which the pressure is applied, i.e. on first and higher moments of the pressure function. An asymptotic expansion of a lumped linear model is derived which predicts the dependence of the induced flow on these moments for an arbitrarily shaped pressure pulse.
