An experimental investigation of the effects of turbulence on primary breakup of round liquid jets subjected to gaseous crossflow is described. The paper investigates the effects of partial degrees of turbulence development in the liquid. Measurements of the properties of primary breakup were obtained using double-pulsed shadowgraphy in a subsonic wind tunnel having a test section of 0.3 m × 0.3 m × 0.6 m. Measurements included primary breakup regimes, conditions required for the onset of breakup, ligament properties along the liquid surface, drop size and velocity distributions after breakup along the liquid surface, conditions required for breakup of the liquid jet as a whole, and liquid jet trajectories.
