A study on the aerodynamic instability of attenuating liquid sheets

A study on the aerodynamic instability of attenuating liquid sheets We describe the characteristics of a radially spreading unstable liquid sheet in quiescent air via optical measurement techniques and linear instability theory. A high speed CCD camera system and a complimentary laser refraction method were employed to measure the intact sheet diameter, unstable wave lengths, wave speed, wave frequency spectrum and spatial wave growth rates. Linear instability models for thinning, viscous and inviscid liquid sheets, which are available from the literature, allow for a comparison of experimental data and predicted sheet behaviour. The last section evaluates the differences and similarities between the current liquid sheet experiment and industrial spray applications such as fuel atomisation via pressure-swirl nozzles. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
