This article numerically investigates the appearance of instabilities in two planar coflowing liquids sheets. As a function of the momentum ratio, two different regimes are distinguished. At low momentum ratios the frequency of the waves appearing in the primary atomization region are influenced by the liquid velocity, whereas an asymptotic regime is obtained for large momentum ratios. In this regime, the gas velocity and the ratio between the gas boundary layer and the thickness of the separator plate influence the observed frequency. Current computational results are in agreement with Ben Rayana’s experimental observations [1].
