Main Article Content
A primary atomization model for visco-elastic liquid is established based on the ligament formation assumption and dispersion relationships. Two linear instability analyses are used in presented paper. Both of them are involved in the primary atomization model and the calculated results are compared with published experimental data. After validation, the model is used to predict the effects of various operating conditions and visco-elastic liquid physical properties on atomization performance.
