Heating and evaporation of automotive fuel droplets

  • Mansour Al Qubeissi

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The previously introduced fuel droplet heating and evaporation models, taking into account temperature gradients, recirculations, and species diffusion within droplets, are further developed and generalised for the application to a broad range of automotive fuel droplets. The research has been conducted in three directions: modelling of biodiesel fuel droplets, modelling of Diesel fuel droplets, and modelling of gasoline fuel droplets.
