Migration and Evaporation Characteristics of Kerosene Droplet in Supercritical Environment
Space Engineering University, 101416 Beijing, China
A one-dimensional full transient droplet evaporation model was established under consideration of factors such as high pressure vapour-liquid equilibrium, high-pressure physical property corrections, gas phase dissolution, and shift of interface. The finite volume method was used for discretization to study the migration and evaporation characteristics of the surrogate fuel for kerosene, which was constituting of (mass fraction)80% n-decane and 20%1,2,4-trimethylbenzene, under supercritical conditions. The results show that, under supercritical conditions, the higher the temperature and the pressure, the easier and the sooner the supercritical migration occurs. Before the supercritical migration occurring, there was obvious boundary between the gas and liquid phases. The mass fraction of component was discontinuous, and the gradient of temperature near the interface was large. After the supercritical migration occurring, the surface of the droplet disappeared, there was no obvious boundary between the gas and liquid phases, and the distribution of the components mass fraction and temperature were continuously. With the increase of the initial temperature of the droplet, the time of the supercritical migration was greatly advanced, the rise rate of the droplet surface temperature increased, and the phenomenon of endothermic expansion no longer appeared.
