Abstract

The vaporization of a multicomponent fuel droplet in a strong convective gas stream is analyzed, with particular emphasis on the generation of internal circulation through the surface shear and its effects on the internal heat and mass transport processes. It is demonstrated that boundary layers exist in both the gas and liquid phases near the droplet surface over most of its lifetime, and that convection is an important transport mode within the droplet. A general model is outlined to study the transient behavior of the droplet.
