Fan-Spray Atomizers Analysis through Mathematical Modeling
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of the 21st ILASS - Europe Meeting 2007, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
The main objective of this work is to determine the most important design parameters in fan spray atomizers and their effect in the atomization features in order to provide a design tool for nozzle manufacturers. A mathematical model relating the geometry and operating conditions to the characteristics of the spray has been obtained and validated. Three different sub-models have been used in series, so that the results of one model become inputs of the next one, namely multiphase flow simulation, instability and break-up model and maximum entropy model. These have been joined achieving a global model of the whole primary atomization process.
