Paper Abstract

The effects of injection parameters on atomization of aviation kerosene (RP-3) were studied using a laser diffraction particle size analyzing system. The test results indicated that Sauter mean diameter (SMD) decreased with the increase of injection temperature. There was a critical temperature for flash evaporation, at which SMD had a sharp decrease. The critical temperature fell at first and then rose with the increase of injection pressure; however, the diameter of a centrifugal nozzle had little influence on the critical temperature. Sauter mean diameter didn’t follow the conventional law after flash evaporation. A simple and empirical correlation between critical temperature for flash evaporation and injection parameters was developed from the experimental data, which can be used to evaluate critical temperature for flash evaporation.
