Introduction The phenomenon of droplet vaporization and combustion has many different applications. Behavior of liquid fuel in combustor is the one that motivates most researches including this work. There are two aspects of this problem: Droplet vaporization & supercritical phenomenon.
Droplet Vaporization Basic physical process No convection, no combustion
Basic physical process with combustionwith combustion
Basic physical process with convectionwith convection
Basic physical process higher rate of blowinghigher rate of blowing
Droplet Vaporization Classic Model: d 2- law To predict: evaporation rate K flame temperature T f flame front standoff ratio r f /r s
Simplifying Assumptions of d 2- law Constant temperature of droplet Simultaneous gasification and combustion Constant transport properties Gas-phase quasi-steadiness No supercritical condition
Supercritical Phenomenon Equation of state p=p(v,T) p-v diagram
Supercritical Phenomenon It is an open question in physics. universality long range correlation
