Original KIVA code cannot take account for the spray and combustion processes of multicomponent fuels. Therefore, it is necessary to produce the sub-models for multicomponent fuel using KIVA code. In this study, the modeling of detailed physical properties and evaporation process for multicomponent fuel was conducted. In addition, the effects of fuel composition in multicomponent fuel on vapor distribution, spray tip penetration, vapor mass and evaporation rate, and sauter mean diameter were numerically investigated by using KIVA 3 V code with this multicomponent fuel spray model. From the numerical results, the spray characteristics of multicomponent fuel varied with a change in mixing fraction in multicomponent fuel. Especially, the evaporation of multicomponent fuel was not necessarily improved, even if much amount of high volatility fuel was mixed in the multicomponent fuel.
