Award Description: This research examines experimentally the interfacial instability mechanisms operative during the rapid disruption and vaporization of superheated droplets in supersonic flow. Droplet superheat is obtained by the rapid depressurization resulting from the injection of droplets into a uniform supersonic stream in a small-scale supersonic wind tunnel. The diagnostic techniques include planar laser-induced fluorescence, double-pulsed planar laser imaging for velocity measurement, spark schlieren/shadowgraph imaging, and direct photography. Numerical simulations of the disrupting drops will also be included in this effort.
