Modeling of Droplet Dynamic and Thermal Behavior during Gas Atomization Process
The paper is focused on the physical phenomena that occurs during gas atomization process, like fragmentation mechanism of the molten stream, the secondary breakup mechanism, droplets velocities and particles temperature history. The modeling of droplet dynamic and thermal history was achieved by using a software program realized by authors, called MetLAB, using the heat balance equations between the cooling gas and the molten metal droplets.
