The modelling of combustion processes of liquid fuels assumes that combustion processes of fuels always occur in gas-phase, gas-phase may be homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture. For homogeneous mixture, course of combustion processes is controlled by kinetics of chemical reactions. For heterogeneous mixture, course of combustion processes is controlled by initial processes, with reference to liquid fuels, vaporization processes of fuel occur. Flow of combustion gases (velocity and kind)

The subject of the paper is the modelling of the combustion process of heterogeneous fuels, researches processes of spraying and combustion. The researches of atomization and combustion processes were performed in combustion chamber of the constant volume. To carry out the research, the test equipment was used, which allowed the visualization of atomization and combustion processes by means of the camera to high-speed photographing, measurements of distribution velocity stream atomised fuel with the laser-equipment PIV, LDV and PDPA, and measurement of the pressure in combustion chamber. The model of the combustion process of heterogeneous fuels based on properties of the boundary layer with addition of the mass was worked out.
