Department: Mechanical Engineering
Author: Prof. Mahesh Panchagnula
University: IIT Madras
Type: WebLink
Abstract: This course covers the theory necessary to understand spray formation and evolution, as well as a host of spray applications.
Topics include drop size distributions, breakup of liquid sheets and ligaments, drop formation and breakup, drop motion and the interaction between a spray and its surroundings, drop evaporation, nozzle internal fluid mechanics, external spray characteristics, nozzle performance, and experimental techniques relevant to these subjects.
Applications this semester will include
1. gas turbine engines
2. sprays for geo-engineering
3. internal combustion engine sprays and
4. use of non-traditional liquids in aero-propulsion and other systems.
