Influence of the Thermodynamic Properties of a Sprayed Liquid on the Droplet-Air Mixture Parameters in the Framework of the Maximum Entropy Model

Section: Soft Matter
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian

Abstract: The influence of the thermodynamic properties of a sprayed liquid on the size and velocity distribution functions for droplets in the droplet-air mixture has been analyzed, by using the maximum entropy method. The results obtained numerically are compared with the experimental data concerning the spraying of diesel fuel and its mixtures with rapeseed oil. The thermodynamic properties of a sprayed liquid are found to affect the final state of the droplet-air system.

Key words: maximum entropy method, droplet-air and disperse systems, droplet distribution functions, biofuel.
