The primary objective of this study is to investigate the effect of a ferrous picrate based catalyst on combustion characteristics of single droplets of diesel and biodiesel through mathematical modelling. The ferrous picrate based catalyst was doped into diesel and biodiesel and the single droplets were suspended at the tip of a quartz fibre undergoing heating, ignition and subsequent combustion in a hot stagnation environment. A comprehensive mathematical model was formulated incorporating…
