Three dimensional numerical studies on the interaction of vaporizing and burning droplets have been conducted to obtain information regarding the droplet interaction in an application for spray combustion system. The burning characteristics of the 3D spherical droplets with internal circulation have been investigated under a turbulent flow condition. To understand the transitional behavior of the 3D droplets, several parametric studies have been carried out. These studies include the effects of oxygen concentration, geometrical arrangement, and the vaporization rate. The results show that the transient flame configuration and droplet internal motion of multiple droplets are greatly influenced by the O2 concentration, the droplet inter-space distances.
