Development of marine engines could largely benefit from the broader usage of methanol and hydrogen which are both potential energy carriers. Here, numerical results are pre-sented on tri-fuel (TF) ignition using large-eddy simulation (LES) and finite-rate chemistry. Zero-dimensional (0D) and three-dimensional (3D) simulations for n-dodecane spray ignition of methanol/hydrogen blends are performed. 0D results reveal the beneficial role of hydrogen addition in facilitating methanol ignition. Based on LES, the following findings are reported: 1) Hydrogen promotes TF ignition, significantly for molar blending ratios beta(X) = [H-2]/([H-2]+[CH3OH]) >= 0.8. 2) For beta(X) = 0, unfavorable heat generation in ambient methanol is noted. We provide evidence that excessive hydrogen enrichment (beta(X) >= 0.94) potentially avoids this behavior, consistent with 0D results. 3) Ignition delay time is advanced by 23-26% with shorter spray vapor penetrations (10-15%) through hydrogen mass blending ratios 0.25/0.5/1.0. 4) Last, adding hydrogen increases shares of lower and higher temperature chemistry modes to total heat release.
