This paper describes work carried out to determine the influence of several design features upon the performance of an air blast fuel injector. The design features studied were the number of tangential fuel holes feeding the swirl chamber, the depth of the swirl chamber, and the shape of the downstream section of the swirl chamber.

The performance parameters considered were, fuel distribution, flow number, air side effective area, spray cone angle and spray SMD. The fuel used was aviation kerosine.

Apparatus for the relatively simple and rapid determination of the fuel distribution within the spray is also described.
