Abstract This research conducted microgravity experiments on the flame spread over droplet-cloud elements with strong droplet interaction aboard Kibo on the ISS. The droplet-cloud element represents a local droplet pattern appearing in randomly distributed droplet clouds near the group-combustion-excitation limit and consists of small-droplet-spacing droplets and large-droplet-spacing droplets. As droplet-cloud elements, we used four n-decane droplets, Droplets C, B, A and L, placed at fiber int...

This research conducted microgravity experiments on the flame spread over randomly distributed n-decane-droplet clouds aboard the Japanese Experiment Module “Kibo” on the International Space Station. 67-152 droplets were distributed at intersections of a 30 × 30 square lattice with 14-micron SiC fibers placed in a combustion chamber. One droplet on the bottom side of lattice was ignited by a hot-wire igniter to start the flame spread. The burning behavior was observed by a digital camera. This p...

Stable operation of liquid-fueled combustors requires the group combustion of fuel spray. Our study employs a percolation approach to describe unsteady group-combustion excitation based on findings obtained from microgravity experiments on the flame spread of fuel droplets. We focus on droplet clouds distributed randomly in three-dimensional square lattices with a low-volatility fuel, such as n-decane in room-temperature air, where the pre-vaporization effect is negligible. We also focus on the ...

Abstract This research investigates the flame-spread characteristics between two droplets, Droplets A and L, of different diameter. n-Decane droplets are placed at intersections of 14 µ SiC fibers. The flame spread from Droplet A to Droplet L was observed in microgravity. The results show that the flame-spread rate decreases with an increase in the droplet spacing or the initial diameter of Droplet L for a constant initial diameter of Droplet A. The flame-spread time is approximated as the summa...
