Abstract : Fuel droplet velocity and size measurements have been obtained in a combusting Diesel spray inside a single-cylinder direct injection Diesel engine. The measurements were made in the near nozzle region by phase Doppler anemometry with high spatial and temporal resolution. An analysis of the data describes the fuel spray breakup and atomization based on a liquid jet and model and identifies three distinct zones in the developing spray. (Author)
