Abstract

Disruptive burning of unsupported free droplets of three component fuel mixtures (under low Reynolds number conditions) is systematically studied to extend the current work on binary solutions towards practical multi-component blends. For ternary systems, superheating, homogeneous bubble nucleation and expansion of the vapor bubble within the liquid are found to be responsible for the fragmentation of the droplet in a manner similar to binary systems.
