  • Characterizing the combustion behaviors of energetic materials requires diagnostic tools that are often not readily or commercially available. For example, a jet of thermite spray provides a high temperature and pressure reaction that can also be highly corrosive and promote undesirable conditions for the survivability of any sensor. Developing a diagnostic to quantify heat flux from a thermite spray is the objective of this study. Quick response sensors such as thin film heat flux sensors can not survive the harsh conditions of the spray, but more rugged sensors lack the response time for the resolution desired. A sensor that willmore » allow for adequate response time while surviving the entire test duration was constructed. The sensor outputs interior temperatures of the probes at known locations and utilizes an inverse heat conduction code to calculate heat flux values. The details of this device are discussed and illustrated. Temperature and heat flux measurements of various thermite spray conditions are reported. Results indicate that this newly developed energetic material heat flux sensor provides quantitative data with good repeatability.« less
  • We performed Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of a turbulent non-reacting n-Heptane spray jet, referred to as Spray H in the Engine Combustion Network (ECN), and executed a data analysis focused on key LES metrics such as fraction of resolved turbulent kinetic energy and similarity index. In the simulation, we used the dynamic structure model for the sub-grid stress, and the Lagrangian-based spray-parcel models coupled with the blob-injection model. The finest mesh-cell size used was characterized by an Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) cell size of 0.0625 mm. To obtain ensemble statistics, we performed 28 numerical realizations of the simulation. Demonstrated bymore » the comparison with experimental data in a previous study [7], this LES has accurately predicted global quantities, such as liquid and vapor penetrations. The analysis in this work shows that 14 realizations of LES are sufficient to provide a reasonable representation of the average flow behavior that is benchmarked against the 28-realization ensemble. With the current mesh, numerical schemes, and sub-grid scale turbulence model, more than 95% of the turbulent kinetic energy is directly resolved in the flow regions of interest. The large-scale flow structures inferred from a statistical analysis reveal a region of disorganized flow around the peripheral region of the spray jet, which appears to be linked to the entrainment process.« less
  • Planar laser-induced fluorescence and two component phase-Doppler interferometry have been used to study the reaction zone structure near the stabilization region of a coaxial methanol/air spray flame. The configuration of the experiment was chosen to simulate the atomizer geometry, surface tension and Weber number of a single coaxial hydrogen/oxygen rocket injector. The measurements are made in a water-cooled, optically-accessible confinement chamber at a pressure of 1 atm. Data are reported for two operating conditions, one yielding a flame length of approximately 1 meter, the other, half that value. Both the Weber number (characterizing the atomization process) and the Reynolds numbermore » (characterizing the gas phase mixing process) vary between the two cases, but the data suggest that it is the Weber number which has the dominant effect. In both cases OH imaging shows that the reaction zone is confined to a narrow region, with the OH field being similar in appearance to that of a single-phase turbulent mixing-controlled (diffusion) flame. Size-classified mean velocity vectors derived from the phase-Doppler data show striking differences in the flow pattern for low and high Stokes number droplets. Droplets 10 {mu}m in diameter and below (Stokes number less than 10) appear to follow the recirculating eddies that provide flame stabilization. Increasing the Weber number by a factor of 2.5 decreased the Sauter mean diameter of the spray by as much as one-third, and the arithmetic mean diameter by as much as one-half. We believe that it is this decrease in the spray droplet diameter that is primarily responsible for the very different flame length in the two cases.« less
