Abstract

"A theoretical model is developed for the prediction of the mean-mass diameter of droplets produced by the fragmentation of liquid fuel sheet and film in a fuel-air explosive (FAE) device after the detonation of the central burster charge. This model does not contain arbitrarily assumed values for the instabilities as in presently available models. Also, a distribution model for the initial distribution of the droplet diameter, which depends on the design parameters of the FAE device, is presented. "
