    Numerical Analysis on Unsteady Internal Flow in an Evaporating Droplet

    Zhentao Wang1,*, Kai Dong, Shuiqing Zhan

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.13, No.4, pp. 221-234, 2017, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2017.013.221

    Abstract We have investigated the unsteady internal flow occurring in an evaporating droplet interacting with a high-temperature atmospheric environment. The Navier-Stokes equations for both the liquid and the gas phases have been solved numerically in the framework of a Volume of Fluid (VOF) method relying on the so-called Continuum Surface Force (CSF) model. A specific kernel able to account for evaporation and related phase change has been incorporated directly in the VOF approach. The temperature distributions within the droplet has been found to be relatively uniform by virtue of the Marangoni flow. The transient evolution of More >

    Analytical and Numerical Study of the Evaporation on Mixed Convection in aVertical Rectangular Cavity

    M. Ihdene1, T. Ben Malek2, S. Aberkane3, M. Mouderes4, P. Spiterri5, A. Ghezal2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 85-105, 2017, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2017.013.085

    Abstract We consider an ascending laminar air flow in a vertical channel formed by two parallel flat plates wetted by a thin water film and under different temperature and concentration conditions. The study includes a numerical finite volume method for the treatment of the double diffusion problem, where the analytical solution is given to the thermal diffusion. The analytical study showed that the reversed flow is observed only under some wall temperature conditions and also for certain values of Re/Gr. The reversed flow is also strongly dependent on the aspect ratio A2, which is based on the… More >

    Droplet Behavior within an LPP Ambiance

    M. Chrigui1,2, L. Schneider1, A. Zghal2, A. Sadiki1, J. Janicka1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.6, No.4, pp. 399-408, 2010, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2010.006.399

    Abstract This paper deals with the numerical simulation of droplet dispersion and evaporation within an LPP (Lean Premix Prevaporized) burner. The Eulerian-Lagrangian approach was used for this purpose, and a fully two way-coupling was accounted for. For the phase transition, a non-equilibrium evaporation model was applied that differs strongly from the equilibrium one where there are high evaporation rates. The non-equilibrium conditions were fulfilled in the investigated configuration, as the droplets at the inlet had a mean diameter of 50mm. The numerical results of water droplet velocities, corresponding fluctuations, and diameters were compared with experimental data. More >

    Profile Analysis of Regularly Microstructured Surfaces

    H. Payer1, T. Haschke1, R. Reichardt1, G. Li2, K. Graf2,3, W. Wiechert1,3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.4, No.2, pp. 61-76, 2008, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2008.004.061

    Abstract Microstructured surfaces are of steadily increasing importance in a large variety of technological applications. For the purpose of quality assurance, e.g. during variation studies of experimental parameters or for comparison with results from simulations, the surface geometry must be precisely measured and described in terms of geometric parameters. An analysis tool for regularly structured surfaces is presented that performs a highly automated evaluation of surface scanning data and derives geometric quality control parameters. To demonstrate the power of the analysis tool it is exemplarily applied for the investigation of microcraters emerging after the evaporation of… More >

    On the Dynamic Capillary Effects in the Wetting and evaporation process of Binary Droplets

    K. Sefiane1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.1, No.3, pp. 267-276, 2005, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2005.001.267

    Abstract In this paper the experimental results on the wetting behaviour of volatile binary sessile drops are reported. The evaporation rate is varied through the control of the ambient total pressure. The dynamic wetting contact angle of an evaporating Water-Ethanol drop is investigated at various sub-atmospheric pressures. The wetting properties (contact angle, shape and volume) are monitored in time using a drop shape analysis instrument. The results show that the evaporation of the binary droplet takes place in two stages: the first stage where the wetting behaviour is very similar to the pure ethanol case and… More >
