A method has been developed whereby suspensions of controlled uniform drop size can be prepared from pure liquids. Using tetralin as the fuel, it has thus been possible, within limits, to study the effect of the drop size on the combustion properties of a liquid-in-air suspension. Through a study of limits of inflammability, nitrogen dilution limits and burning velocities, it has been shown that the mechanism of flame propagation is completely transformed within the drop-size range 7 to 55… CONTINUE READING
