Abstract [en]

The main objective of this work is to determine the most important design parameters in fan spray atomizers and their effect in the atomization features in order to provide a design tool for nozzle manufacturers. A mathematical model relating the geometry and operating conditions to the characteristics of the spray has been obtained and validated. Three different sub-models have been used in series, so that the results of one model become inputs of the next one, namely multiphase flow simulation, instability and break-up model and maximum entropy model. These have been joined achieving a global model of the whole primary atomization process.
