Numerical analysis of a shear layer between a cool liquid hydrocarbon and a hotter oxygen gas at supercritical pressures shows that a well-defined phase equilibrium can be established. Variable properties are considered with the product of density and viscosity in the gas phase showing a nearly constant result. Sufficiently thick diffusion layers form around the liquid-gas interface for the selected free-stream velocities at a streamwise distance of x = 1 cm for different pressures (i.e., 10…

Planar liquid jet: Early deformation and atomization cascades
The temporal evolution of three-dimensional instabilities on a planar liquid sheet segment is studied using direct numerical simulation, and the level-set and volume-of-fluid methods for the
Vorticity dynamics for transient high-pressure liquid injectiona)
The liquid jet from a round orifice during the transient start-up and steady mass flux periods of a high pressure injector is studied via Navier-Stokes and level-set computations. Via
Early spray development at high gas density: hole, ligament and bridge formations
Three-dimensional temporal instabilities, leading to spray formation of a round liquid jet segment with an outer, coaxial high-density gas flow, are studied with Navier–Stokes and level-set
Recent Experimental Efforts on High-Pressure Supercritical Injection for Liquid Rockets and Their Implications
Pressure and temperature of the liquid rocket thrust chambers into which propellants are injected have been in an ascending trajectory to gain higher specific impulse. It is quite possible then that
