Rapid evaporation at the superheat limit

  title={Rapid evaporation at the superheat limit},
  author={J.. and Shepherd and Bradford Sturtevant},
In an experimental investigation of the transient processes that occur when a single droplet of butane at the superheat limit vaporizes explosively, short-exposure photographs and fast-response pressure measurements have been used to construct a description of the complete explosion process. It is observed that only a single bubble forms within the drop during each explosion, and that the growth proceeds on a microsecond time scale. An interfacial instability driven by rapid evaporation has… CONTINUE READING
