Abstract : A new concept for the investigation of fuel spray evaporation from a phenomenological approach is introduced. Heat transfer determines the amount of fuel evaporated, and the states of the fuel and its vapour at that time. These in turn are functions of certain physical and thermodynamic properties of the fuel. Therefore, if the total heat loss of the environment can be measured, the amount of fuel evaporated can be estimated. From this, some spray evaporation characteristics may be predicted. Based on this concept, an experimental method is devised. This approach then offers an alternative to the existing mechanistic approach. (Modified author abstract)
