Vapour-mediated sensing and motility in two-component droplets
Measurements and predictions of the ignition delay time or single droplets of several two-component mixtures at atmospheric pressure are
presented. The results show that ignition is controlled by the more
volatile component of the mixture. The ignition delay time is round to
be nearly independent of species transport in the liquid phase. Mixture
reaction rates are shown to be adequately modelled by simple linear
combination of component rate data.
