Disintegration Mechanism of a Coaxial Porous Injector Lee, Keonwoong; Kim, Dohun; Son, Min; Koo, Jaye;
In a coaxial porous injector, a gas propellant is injected through the porous cylinder surface to the liquid jet which is encircled by a porous cylinder. In this study, to observe the differences in disintegration mechanisms between a shear coaxial injector and a coaxial porous injector, cold-flow tests and 2-D axisymmetric numerical analysis have been carried out. The shadowgraph images and Sauter mean diameters were compared in similar experimental conditions, and the effects of velocity distributions at the inner injector region on the disintegration of liquid jet were investigated through the numerical calculations. As a result, in high air mass flow rate condition, the disintegration performance of coaxial porous injector is better than shear coaxial injector, in spite of a lower velocity at the inner injector region.
