ABSTRACT Butanol is mainly produced by acetone–butanol–ethanol (A-B-E) fermentation. The higher costs associated with the separation of butanol from the A-B-E mixture has prohibited the large-scale production of butanol. The direct use of the intermediate product (A-B-E mixture) could be an economical pathway if utilized for clean combustion. The present investigation deals with the puffing and micro-explosion characteristics in the combustion of a single droplet comprising butanol/Jet A-1, A-B… 

Combustion characteristics of butanol‐Jet A‐1 fuel blends in a swirl‐stabilized combustor under the influence of preheated swirling air

Biofuels are carbon‐neutral alternative fuels, which have emerged as an important source of energy for the aviation industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is considered an emerging

Micro-Explosion Phenomenon: Conditions and Benefits

Adding water to fuel droplets is known to lead to puffing and micro-explosion. Puffing and micro-explosion lead to a rapid increase in the liquid fuel surface area. This, in turn, leads to an

Atomization characteristics and instabilities in the combustion of multi-component fuel droplets with high volatility differential

The wrinkling pattern at the vapor-liquid interface suggests that a Rayleigh-Taylor type of instability triggered at the interface further expedites the droplet breakup.



Spray and Combustion Characteristics of Neat Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol, n-Butanol, and Diesel in a Constant Volume Chamber

Intermediate product of biobutanol production, acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) as an alternative fuel has drawn increasing attention in recent years due to its potential to eliminate various production

Combustion of n-Butanol, Gasoline, and n-Butanol/Gasoline Mixture Droplets

Fuels derived from biofeedstocks are receiving attention for their potential as additives to conventional petroleum-based transportation fuels. Normal butanol, in particular, can enhance performance

Estimating the Secondary Droplet Size Distribution after Micro-Explosion of Bio-Fuel Droplets

Recently, some potential alternative substitutes of petroleum fuels such as biodiesel, ethanol, and butanol have received much attention because they are renewable and friendly to the environment and
