Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe transient burning of an n-octane fuel droplet in a hot gas stream is numerically studied using a fourstep reduced mechanism, with considerations of droplet surface regression, deceleration due to the drag of the droplet, internal circulation inside the droplet, variable properties, non-uniform surface temperature, and the effect of surface tension. Two different types of the four-step mechanism are examined and found almost identical. The four-step mechanism has earlier instant of the wake-…
