Similarity solutions for the evolution of polydisperse droplets in vortex flows

Similarity solutions for the evolution of polydisperse droplets in vortex flows •A new mathematical formulation for the dynamics of evaporating sprays in the vicinity of vortex flows was derived. •New similarity solutions were found for the dynamics of the unsteady spray. •A new model was derived for the prediction of the terminal radial velocity of the droplets using perturbation theory. •Polydisperse spray dynamics is highly affected by both the droplets’ size and by the spray initial size distribution. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Multiphase Flow Elsevier

Abstract

•A new mathematical formulation for the dynamics of evaporating sprays in the vicinity of vortex flows was derived. •New similarity solutions were found for the dynamics of the unsteady spray. •A new model was derived for the prediction of the terminal radial velocity of the droplets using perturbation theory. •Polydisperse spray dynamics is highly affected by both the droplets’ size and by the spray initial size distribution.
