Behavior of Small Fuel Droplet near Butane Diffusion Flame 2013-32-9123

In this paper, droplet behavior near diffusion flame was observed. Single droplet was created by thin glass tube and piezo device which pushes the side of glass tube. Dispersions of droplets location near diffusive flame were compared to droplets with no flame condition. CCD camera, strobe light with 180nsec flash time and lens of ten magnification were used for observation. Droplet pictures were taken with resolution of 0.46um/pix. As a result, droplets near diffusive flame tend to increase its dispersion of location as approaching tip of the flame. Stefan flow caused by evaporation and turbulence outer flow can be thought as causes.
