This paper examines droplets that cluster and evaporate in reactive turbulence with direct numerical simulations. The flows are statistically homogeneous and isotropic with mass loadings of about 0.1, Stokes numbers of about 1, and Taylor-scale Reynolds numbers of about 40. Our simulation results reveal diffusion and premixed flames. When the mass loading is small or the Stokes number is large, clusters contain few droplets such that diffusion flames surround single droplets. However, when the mass loading is large or the Stokes number is small, clusters contain many droplets such that premixed flames propagate through clusters and diffusion flames surround clusters.
