Diesel fuel spray characteristics are thought to depend on cavitation inside the fuel injector nozzles. These nozzles are very small and the fuel flow is very fast, making experimental observation very difficult. Numerical simulation of the two-phase flow is hindered by the severe density difference between the liquid and vapor as well as the existence of complex free surfaces. Recent experimental and numerical advances are now permitting visual observation of real-scale cavitating flow anddoi:10.4271/1999-01-0518 fatcat:254dynqslraxfgoblc7yzeuep4
