An improved semi-empirical analysis is presented for the liquid fuel distribution downstream of a plain orifice fuel injector under cross-stream airflow of uniform high velocity and constant ambient temperature. The analysis is based on a simplified “flat-fan spray” model (ε – ψ model). The ε – ψ model is proposed which assumes that the fuel injected through the orifice forms a flat-fan liquid sheet with an average fan angle 2 ψ0. Once the droplets have been formed, the trajectory of individual droplets determines the fuel distribution downstream. The validity of the analysis is confirmed by comparison of calculations based on the ε – ψ model and test data obtained from fuel distribution experiments under cross-stream air flow of ambient temperature. The agreement is shown to be very good. The semi-empirical analysis presented offers a very useful approach in the preliminary design of the fan air flow path portion of turbo-fan after-burners.
