Atomization of a Liquid Jet in a Crossflow

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter provides a review on the penetration and atomization of liquid jets in subsonic crossflows (LJICF). More emphasis is put on the basic physics of the problem while a general overview of different types of research on the subject is presented. The categorization is based on the physics of the problem rather than the type of the studies (numerical, theoretical, or experimental) to help better understanding of the involving physics.

Keywords

Jet in crossflow Jet drag coefficient Jet penetration Jet trajectory Shear stripping model
