In this paper, a method is presented to obtain the exact solution of the Stefan-Maxwell equations for multicomponent diffusion systems. This method is the continuation of Gilliland and Toor’s works for ternary diffusion systems. As an example, a solution of the Stefan-Maxwell equations for four-component system is given. Finally, the result is used for the calculation of the evaporation histories of multicomponent fuel droplets in hot air flow. The calculated results are favorably compared with the experimental data.
