New correlation of subsonic, supersonic and cryo gas jets validated by highly accurate schlieren measurements

New correlation of subsonic, supersonic and cryo gas jets validated by highly accurate schlieren... High-speed schlieren visualization at 20,000 fps was performed to investigate the transient penetration depth of helium gas jets into air at 8 different pressure ratios. The injection pressure investigated was between 1.5 and 40 bar. The pressure in the mixing chamber was varied between 1.0 and 4.0 bar. The different pressure ratios were chosen to examine subsonic and underexpanded jets. To investigate the density dependence of the process, cryo injections were performed at injection temperatures of 224, 198 and 173 K at different pressure ratios. Using the image processing technique for detecting the jet tip penetration distance, presented in this article, it can be shown that for a given injector the jet penetration behavior is the same for the same pressure ratio. A new self-similar model was developed, to describe the influence of the injection and chamber gas density on the jet penetration behavior more accurately. The model was verified with the experimental data sets presented in this paper and with literature data. Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
