Simulation and numerical investigations of the kinetics of atmospheric aerosol droplets in the wake behind a flat plate
Within the framework of the physicomathematical model of evolution of a polydisperse condensate, numerical investigations of the kinetics of atmospheric aerosol droplets in a supersonic two-phase flow past a flat plate were carried out. The gas flow was described by the Reynolds equations with the use of the two-parameter turbulence model. In view of the smallness of the condensate mass fraction in the incoming flow, the inverse effect of the dispersed phase on the gas was not considered. For various regimes of exposure to a flow, the characteristic features of the spatial distribution of the main parameters of the condensate fractions have been studied: the number densities, radii, temperatures, and averaged velocities of microdrops. The dependence of the dispersed phase dynamics on the Mach number and the incoming flow angle of attack has been investigated and the influence of the allowance for the processes of coagulation/fragmentation on the mass spectrum of droplets is shown.
