Abstract The liquid-phase processes occurring during fuel droplet combustion are important in deciding the behaviour of the overall combustion process, especially, for the binary fuel droplets. Hence, understanding these processes is essential for explaining the combustion of the binary fuel droplet. However, experimental investigation of such processes is not easily accomplishable due to the very short period of time available for tracking them within the finely small fuel droplet. In the prese...

Abstract The temporal evolution of the droplet radius is measured experimentally in high-temperature inert atmospheres for three different alcohols (ethanol, n-butanol, and glycerol) and three alkanes (n-heptane, n-dodecane, and n-hexadecane). It is shown that, while accompanying theoretical predictions of droplet-radius variations show excellent accuracy for the three alcohols, the three alkanes exhibit vaporization rates that are significantly smaller than those predicted theoretically. The ac...

Abstract The self-assembled clusters of regularly positioned small droplets were observed for the first time in 2004 by Alexander Fedorets. The recent results on stabilization of droplet clusters enable the laboratory study of specific parameters of chemical and biochemical reactions in the microdroplets. However, the analysis of the cluster behavior under the action of external factors is also continued. Some new experimental findings concerning behavior of a cluster of water droplets levitatin...

Abstract The cooling performance of natural draft dry cooling towers (NDDCTs) would significantly be reduced when the ambient air is hot. To address this problem, the spray pre-cooling technology has been introduced to cool the inlet air of the tower. The effect of two-nozzle distance on the evaporative cooling performance will instruct the arrangement of multi-nozzle for industrial applications. This paper is therefore to study two nozzles vertically arranged in a wind tunnel by the numerical s...
DropletSMOKE++ is a multiphase CFD framework based on OpenFOAM, originally developed and validated for suspended droplets evaporation in a gravity field and convective conditions. In this work the solver is further extended to account for gas-phase combustion introducing: (i) an operator-splitting methodology to efficiently solve the gas-phase chemistry with large kinetic mechanisms, (ii) a model for the flame radiation and (iii) a double vaporization model to account for possible boiling. This ...
In this paper a numerical methodology for surface tension modeling is presented, with an emphasis on the implementation in the OpenFOAM framework. The methodology relies on a combination of (i) a well-balanced approach based on the Ghost Fluid Method (GFM), including the jump of density and pressure directly in the numerical discretization of the pressure equation, and (ii) Height Functions to evaluate the interface curvature, implemented, to the authors' knowledge, for the first time in OpenFOA...

Abstract Flood discharge atomization is a phenomenon of water fog diffusion caused by the discharge of water from a spillway structure, which brings strong wind and heavy rainfall. These unnatural winds and rainfall are harmful for the safe operation of hydropower stations with high water heads. Compared to the method of prototype observations, physical models and mathematical models, which are semi-theoretical and semi-empirical, numerical simulation methods have the advantage of being not limi...

Abstract The diesel engine is widely used due to its thermal efficiency, reliability and fuel economy, while diesel engine emissions are harmful to the environment and human health. Therefore, the standards (EPA, Tier, NRE-v/c standards, etc.) limit the exhaust emission of engines around the world. The most successful method of reducing emissions is to optimize the combustion chamber and the fluid motion inside the engine. In this study, experimental and numerical methods were used in a diesel e...

The relatively new thermometry technique “pulsed 2cLIF with MDR-enhanced energy transfer” is tested for the first time on micro-droplet streams in a heated air flow. The method allows simultaneous measurements of the droplet internal temperature-field, droplet size and droplet velocity. Plausibility of the measurement results is evaluated by comparing results of various experimental conditions among each other and by comparison with analytic modeling. Overall, measurement results are plausible. ...

Abstract Combustion characteristics of n-heptane dilute sprays in a model supersonic combustor fueled by hydrogen are numerically investigated. The two-phase compressible reactive flows are solved by a Eulerian-Lagrangian framework. Supersonic air enters the combustor at Mach 2.0, whereas hydrogen is injected sonically at the strut base. Monodispersed liquid n-heptane droplets are carried by hydrogen jet at different Spray Equivalence Ratios (SERs), which range from 0 to 0.096. The results show ...
