Features of heat loss effects in spray diffusion flames

M. Matalon, J. B. Greenberg

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The structure of a simple one-dimensional spray diffusion flame is examined by means of asymptotics and numerics. The results emphasize the importance of the heat and mass transfer rates, the supply conditions and the droplet loading factor on the burning process. Particular attention is given to the conditions for flame extinguishment and to the onset of spontaneous flame oscillation.
