Fedsm – Icnmm 2010-31259 Flapping Instability of an Atomized Liquid Jet

We present an experimental study of the flapping in stability which appears when a coaxial liquid jet is atomized by a cocurrent fast gas stream. When primary atomization d es not lead to a total break-up of the liquid jet, it unde rgoes a largewavelength instability, characterized by very large amplitude oscillations, and can break into large liquid fragm… (More)
