Classical and Novel Approaches to Modelling Droplet Heating and Evaporation
- 74 Downloads
Classical approaches to modelling the processes during droplet heating and evaporation are summarised. Novel approaches to modelling these processes are described. In these approaches, commonly used assumptions that the sum of vapour and air densities does not depend on the distance from the droplet surface, and that droplet thermal conductivity is infinitely high are relaxed. The most recent approaches to modelling these processes are briefly described.
