Original Abstract

Two different methods were used to quantify the unsteadiness of effervescent atomizer generated spray in relation to operational conditions, two-phase flow pattern inside the atomizer mixing chamber and position in spray. The first method is based on measurement of pressure fluctuations in atomizer mixing chamber. This novel method was derived and applied here. Results show that decrease in GLR causes the nozzle to become more unsteady. Steady behaviour under dispersed and annular internal flow and tendency to unsteadiness when the flow shifts from frothy to bubbly can be seen on the two-phase flow maps. The second method, developed by Edvard and Marx, uses a comparison of measured interparticle arrival time distribution with theoretical distribution function modelled as inhomogeneous Poisson process. Not fully identical results with those in previous case in relation to the atomizer operation conditions show the spray unsteadiness development after discharge. Spray is more unsteady at its edge as well as at greater downstream distances, which is consistent with other authors findings.
