Application of averaged equations to analysis of dropletgas flow fields
Abstract
A continuum approach, using averaged conservation equations, is used to study several problems in two phase flow. The basic equations are those derived by Drew in his 1970 Ph.D. thesis at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. These equations are extended and applied to three specific problems: (1) one dimensional flow of evaporating spherical droplets with velocity equilibrium between the phases; (2) one dimensional flow of evaporating droplets without velocity equilibrium; and (3) two phase flow of small spherical droplets past a large sphere.
