THE MAXIMUM ENTROPY METHOD APPLIED TO LIQUID JET ATOMIZATION

Abstract : A method is proposed to obtain by theoretical considerations the size distribution of sprays for a thick layer in the presence of gaseous flow. First, a maximum disturbance wave length is deduced from linear theory. This wave length is injected into a Stuart vortex in which the deformation of an initially planar liquid surface leads to the formation of a ligament. Droplets are formed by breakup of this transversal detached-or longitudinal attached-ligament and a theoretical mean diameter can be determined. Maximum entropy principles are then applied to deduce the size distribution.
