Abstract

Effect of the droplet size distribution of fuel spray on the soot formation process in spray flames is investigated. The vibratory orifice atomizer is used to control the droplet size distribution of fuel spray. Two-dimensional soot volume fraction and primary soot particle size are measured by the Time-Resolved Laser Induced Incandescence (Time-Resolved LII) method and direct numerical simulation. The relationship between spatial distribution of fuel droplets and soot formation area are observed by the LII method and Interferometric Laser Imaging Droplet Sizing (ILIDS) method. The results show that flame structures of spray flame and soot formation process are affected critically by the mean droplet size of fuel spray. The mean soot formation area is increased by increase of the mean droplet size of fuel spray. The primary soot particles become large at around the edge of soot formation area. This trend mainly occurs from surface growth of soot particles. The group of some droplets and its vapor forms the soot formation area, and the large droplet of liquid fuel deforms shape of the soot formation area.
