Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe enhancement and hysteresis behavior of the burning rate of single droplet combustion in the presence of airstream oscillation observed in previously performed microgravity experiments at elevated pressure up to 1.0 MPa were numerically investigated. Excellent agreement with the experimental results was obtained and the mechanisms of these phenomena were examined based on precise numerical data on instantaneous droplet diameter variations corresponding to the unsteady airstream velocity, flo…
