A mathematical model capable of describing the evaporation, mixing and burning characteristics of a confined reacting two-phase flow is presented. The flow field is described by solving the partial differential equations of continuity, momentum, and energy transport, together with the equations of turbulence. Evaporation is accounted for via a droplet evaporation sub-model which runs in parallel with the gas-phase solver exchanging data with it. Effective properties are calculated in each control volume and the property changes resulting from the evaporation are allowed to propagate according to the turbulent mixing model. Combustion follows the mixing process and is assumed to proceed to equilibrium. The model is validated against experimental results, and its applicability over a wide range of conditions is investigated. [S0742-4795(00)03002-7]
