Abstract: a b s t r a c tWet compression of a fuel aerosol has been proposed as a means of creating gas-phase mixtures of involatile diesel-representative fuels and oxidizer + diluent gases for rapid compression machine (RCM) experiments. The use of high concentration aerosols (e.g., $0.1 mL fuel /L gas , $1 Â 10 9 droplets/L gas for stoichiometric fuel loading at ambient conditions) can result in droplet-droplet interactions which lead to significant gasphase fuel saturation and evaporative cooling during the volumetr…
