Abstract

The problem of microwave (MW) electromagnetic radiation impact on a single water-in-oil droplet is considered. The system of heat equations within the droplet and in the surrounding liquid, incompressible Navier-Stokes equations within the droplet and in the surrounding liquid, and equation of state are considered. The formulated problem is solved numerically using TDMA (Tri-diagonal-matrix algorithm), SIMPLE algorithm and VOF method (volume of fluid method for the dynamics of free boundaries) in Euler coordinates. The results in the form of the dependence of the temperature within the droplet and in the surrounding liquid on the time of microwave impact and streamlines thermal convection are represented; dependence of the velocity of droplet's moving on the power of the of the microwave impact is shown. The obtained results can help to establish criteria for the efficient applicable of the microwave method for the water-in-oil emulsions destruction.
