Abstract

The burning process of a fuel droplet accompanied by an oxidizer droplet is studied experimentally by the suspended droplet method, and numerically by a quasi-steady body-fitted computation. Methyl alcohol was selected as the fuel and hydrogen peroxide served as the oxidizer. Experimental observations and numerical predictions demonstrated that bipropellant droplet interaction exhibits very different characteristics for both oxidizer-droplet heat-up and vaporizing periods.
