Fuel Droplet Vaporization

  1. Oct 13, 2005 #1
    Does anyone know how to calculate the vaporization rate of a droplet of isooctane at a given diameter?

    Thank you

    Can anyone help please?

    The only paper I have found is stored on a harvard university server. They only show the abstract but the paper itself seems inaccessible.

    This is FAST becoming an area of intense interest, for good reason. I will attempt to find and post helpful information.

    I have found this equasion in a paper describing coductivity properties of isooctane, I hope it will be helpful. m= dm/dt = 2 pi r . not being able to use scientific notation with this keyboard , lower case d is inserted wth mass and again with radius in the equasion.The best i could do was to show it as m/d , and i believe that would make it too
    difficult to understand. this equasion was used to obtain vaporization rate of isooctane
    at given diameter of droplets.
