Unsteady Transport at a Liquid-Gas Interface at Supercritical

Except for final stages in the cascade, the atomization process is weakly dependent on surface tension. Consequently, substantial similarities are found for homogeneous jets (e.g., air-into-air or water -into-water) and liquid jets into gas. Vorticity dynamics explains the cascade which is essentially a turbulent transition process with hairpin

This quantity appears

The process where the bulk liquid stream breaks into a large number of small droplets is often referred to as atomization and the resulting gas-droplets mixture as a spray.

The prototypal flow for an evaporating spray is constituted by a turbulent free jet which is characterized by the effect of environmental gas entrainment. In more detail, a turbulent jet is constituted by a rotational turbulent core which is continuously entrained by the surrounding irrotational fluid [28].

Also, it is assumed that chemical reaction rates are very large compared to the rate of vaporization, These assumptions tacitly imply that the reaction zone ends as soon as the liquid layer is vaporized.
