- A droplet of emulsified fuel (hexadecane, with 30% dispersed water and 2% surfactant) was supported by a vapor film between the droplet and a polished hot surface. Overlighting with a laser was used. During vaporization of approx. 2000 ..mu..m droplet, rapid internal circulation caused coalescence of the dispersed water droplets. Convective velocities are 0.2 to 0.5 m/s. During circulation, these droplets move directly along the fuel surface and are not preferentially distilled from the droplet. Coalescence of the water continues until all the water is in a single lump, and then this lump falls to the base of the droplet. (DLC)
