Abstract
Nozzles are utilized in atomizing liquids in many industrial and domestic applications. Examples include domestic and industrial heating units (furnaces and boilers), internal combustion engines, agricultural spraying, spray painting, etc. To improve atomizer design, it is necessary to obtain spray characteristics which include the simultaneous droplet size and velocity information. Also droplet interactions in the dense spray region affect the characteristics. Interacting spray configurations are also encountered in many industrial applications and lead to direct interactions among the droplets. The Particle Dynamic Analyzer which utilizes a combination of Laser Doppler Anemometry and Phase Doppler Interferometry to simultaneously measure droplet velocity and diameter was used to study (1) the spray characteristics of Delavan nozzles and (2) the interaction between two sprays. The results of the tests are discussed in this paper.
