Abstract:

The development of the process of combustion in a high temperature supersonic flow is determined by the quality of the fuel atomization, in the engine atomization, evaporation, and mixing. The results of a study of the form of the torch of atomization and also the scale of the atomization in a supersonic flow are presented. An examination of the process of atomization is conducted within the frame work of an aerodynamically posed problem without a computation of the heat transfer and phase transitions evaporation, dissociation etc. It is assumed that disintegration of the liquid occurs very rapidly and the heat phenomena in a number of cases do not succeed in influencing substantially the initial diameter of the particles which later on, of course, are subject to evaporation.
