Identification of a Common-Rail Diesel Jet Contour and Spray Droplet Velocity by Two Different Laser Techniques 2000-01-2861
Non evaporating diesel sprays from an Electronic Common Rail system are investigated by two different laser light techniques at room temperature within vessels at both ambient and high pressures. Injection is performed by using single-hole injectors of mini-sac type with nozzle orifices 0.18 and 0.22 mm, which operate at injection pressures in the range 40 to 120 MPa. The fuel used is the standard ISO 4113. The densities of ambient gas (nitrogen) are varied in the constant volume vessel within the range 1.2 ÷ 58.4 kg/m3. Two different laser diagnostics are used to infer quantitative information on jet properties. The first is the light Extinction Ratio (ER) method, which is applied at wavelengths 632.8 nm and 832 nm in correspondence of the early instants (∼200÷800 μs) after the end of the liquid injection to infer the average droplet diameter and the number concentration along the line-of-sight. The second experimental technique is the Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA). The droplet 2D velocity fields are measured as function of the radial coordinate and distance from the nozzle. A methodology is proposed to precisely locate the spray contour from the measurements of the 2D velocity distributions on the spray periphery region.
