Molecular Dynamic Modeling of Supercritical Lox Evaporation

The complete evaporation of a three-dimensional submicron oxygen droplet into quiescent environments has been simulated using molecular dynamics. The environments were comprised of either hydrogen or helium and pressures ranged from 2-20 MPa. Droplet evaporation rates and thermodynamic property profiles were obtained. Results show that at low to moderate… CONTINUE READING
