High Momentum Jet Flames at Elevated Pressure, E: Quantification of Droplet Size Distribution and Transport

Matthias HaseBertram Janus


The present work investigates a model combustor that approximates a full-scale segment of a high momentum jet stabilised combustion concept with the objective to broaden fuel flexibility limits. The rig features optical access for detailed laser based diagnostics. The current experiments are conducted at a pressure of 8 bar, constant jet velocity and adiabatic flame temperature. Three different injection systems are used to inject oil and oil / water blends. Droplet size distributions and turbulent droplet transport are quantified by means of phase Doppler interferometry. The injection system has a noticeable impact on the droplet size distribution. Water addition affects the fuel placement in radial direction significantly with distinct droplet transport into the reaction zone. The jet core and droplet transport is maintained as far as 7 x/d axial downstream from the nozzle exit. The shear layer shows a turbulent intensity of 12% of the main jet bulk velocity that drives the radial droplet transport into the recirculation zone. Mass flow and number density estimations illustrate the spatial distribution of the liquid loading in the combustion chamber. The present findings are complementary to the work in part A–D, support the ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
