Effect of Xylene Ratio on the Secondary Atomization with UV Laser 2015-32-0796

In our study, phenomena is observed that 30µm droplet become breakup by UV laser irradiation. This phenomena change by composition of droplet. Then we focused on difference of absorbance, hexadecane and o-xylene are used as fuel. The former do not absorb UV enough and the latter do absorb UV enough. And authors examined the relation mixing ratio and breakup phenomena using blended fuel which consist of hexadecane and o-xylene. With regard to the UV laser we used, wavelength is 266nm, flash of time is 10nsec and laser intensity is 15mJ. CCD camera, strobe light with 180nsec flash time and lens of ten magnification were used for observation. As a result, we obtained the following; 1) A state of breakup phenomena depend on concentration of o-xylene. 2) The absorbance is not related with a state of breakup phenomena.
