Abstract
Gelled propellant is promising for future aerospace application because of its combination of the advantages of solid propellants and liquid propellants. An effort was made to reveal the atomization properties of gelled fuel by particle image velocimetry (PIV) system. The gelled fuel which was formed by gasoline and Nano-silica was atomized using a like-doublet impingement injector and an axisymmetric like-triplet impingement injector. The orifice diameter and length of the nozzle used in this work were of 0.8mm, 4.8mm, respectively. In the impinging spray process, the impingement angles were set at 90° and 120°, and the injection pressures were of 0.50MPa and 1.00MPa. The distance from the exit of the orifice to the impingement point was fixed at 9.6mm. In this study, high-speed visualization and temporal resolution particle image velocimetry techniques were employed to investigate the impingement atomization characteristics. The experimental investigation demonstrated that a long narrow high speed droplets belt formed around the axis of symmetry in the like-doublet impinging atomization area. However, there was no obvious high-speed belt with impingement angle 2θ = 90° and two high-speed belts appeared with impingement angle 2θ = 120° in the like-doublet impingement spray field. The high droplet velocity zone of the like-doublet impingement atomization symmetrically distributed around the central axis, and that of the like-triplet impingement spray deflected to the left of the central axis - opposite of injector. Although the droplets velocity distribution was asymmetry of like-triplet impingement atomization, the injectors were arranged like axisymmetric conical shape, and the cross section of spray area was similar to a circle rather than a narrow rectangle like the like-doublet impingement atomization.
