Spray Diagnostics

A spray can only do its job well if it has the necessary properties for the application. This includes, for example, that the droplet sizes and droplet velocities are in a certain range or that the liquid is distributed evenly across the spray cross-section. At our chair we have a variety of measurement techniques for the characterisation of sprays.These include high-speed cameras with various lenses, such as a far-field microscope, and Particle-Image-Velocimetry to determine the velocity distribution in the spray, Particle- Doppler-Anemometry to determine droplet sizes and velocities, fluorescence techniques to determine the spray density or infrared thermography to characterise the spray/wall-interaction. In addition, we have a conditionable, optically accessible chamber in which experiments can be carried out under negative and positive realtive pressure and at high temperatures.
