Paper Abstract

Analysis of spray pattern images has been utilized to characterize fuel sprays in various environments. One of the technical challenges in the analysis is to acquire low noise and consistent quality images of particles for accurate measurement. Especially, difficult is the fuel droplet image formation and acquisition in an engine chamber because of the harsh environment and asynchronous nature between an engine and a recording device. This paper describes a system which forms snapshot images of a fuel spray, captures them using a TV camera and records them on a video disk recorder for automatic analysis. The hardware and control software aspects of the imaging system are discussed in this paper.
