The effects of various ambient pressure and temperature conditions on the ignition characteristics of kerosene-based nanofluid droplets were investigated experimentally. Individual kerosene droplet containing 0.1 or 1% by mass was mounted on the tip of silicon carbide (SiC) fiber and exposed to ambient temperatures in the range of 400-700 degrees C and ambient pressures in the range of 0.1-2.5 MPa under normal gravity. An increase in ambient pressure was observed to reduce the ignition location distance below a droplet. The ignition delay times of pure kerosene droplets were also examined for comparison. The results showed that the ignition delay time of Al NPs-laden kerosene droplets decreased exponentially with increasing temperature, as did that of pure kerosene droplets. An ambient pressure increase from 0.1 to 2.5 MPa led to a decrease in the lowest ambient temperature for ignition from 800 to 400 degrees C. At pressures greater than 1 MPa, the ignition delay times of droplets with 1% Al were shorter than those of pure kerosene and kerosene with 0.1% Al. Furthermore, as the ambient pressure increased from 0.1 to 2.5 MPa, the ignition delay was found to decrease and then increase exceeding the limiting pressure. (C) 2016 The Combustion Institute.
