Spray-Flame Dynamics in a Rich Droplet Array

In a recent numerical paper (Nicoli et al. Combust. Sci. Technol. vol. 186, pp. 103-119; 2014) [1], a model of isobaric flame propagation in lean sprays has been proposed. The initial state of the monodisperse mists was schematized by a system of individual alkane droplets initially located at the nodes of a face-centered 2D-lattice, surrounded by a saturated mixture of alkane and air. In the present study, the previous model is complemented with an original chemical scheme that allows us to study the combustion of rich alkane/air mixtures.
