Single Charged Drop Stability, Evaporation and Combustion

  • John Shrimpton
Part of the Heat and Mass Transfer book series (HMT)


Before moving onto more applied and empirical aspects of the monograph, in this chapter the effect electrical charge has upon the stability, and also the evaporation and combustion processes of a single liquid drop is discussed. This may be viewed as a precursor to a discussion of the characteristics of spray plumes, which are generated by electrostatic atomizers and are comprised of electrically charged drops.
