An evolution equation for a laminar flame front propagating into an air and liquid fuel mist cloud is derived for the first time, accounting for both the finite-rate evaporation of the fuel droplets and the slip velocity between them and their host environment. The asymptotic analysis employed in developing the equation exploits the usual inverse large activation energy parameter associated with chemical reaction in the flame and a small drag parameter. It is demonstrated that, in the no-slip velocity case, i…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
