Jet Instability and Primary Atomization

  • John Shrimpton
Part of the Heat and Mass Transfer book series (HMT)


Studies of the break-up of dielectric liquid jets are theoretically more complicated than prediction of instability of conducting liquids because the surface charge distribution is not at an equipotential and the surface area evolves. Therefore the jet surface electrical boundary conditions are not well defined. This chapter covers the experimental data available, and provides qualitative understanding and empirical correlations.
