Turbulence - Spray Interactions

Institute of Combustion Technology for Aerospace Engineering

Experimental Investigations on the Influence of Turbulence on Primary Atomization

Influence of turbulence on primary breakup of different injection concepts. We deliberately modulate the turbulence of the gas phase flow, e.g., using fractal grids and swirlers, with the objective of suppressing or exciting disturbances on the liquid surface to favour atomization into the smallest possible droplets.
