Abstract

A Low Weber water spray subjected to an air cross flow has been investigated. The spray is characterized by low liquid injection velocity, producing a column that is broken up by aerodynamic forces from the oncoming air.PIV and PDA have been used to quantify both the continuous and dispersed phases. Long range microscopy has been used to characterize the column breakup process. It has been shown that bubbles (akin to droplet bag breakup) may form already in the column.
