the partners of the ANR’s ECN France project spent 4 years working together to try and gain a better understanding of the physical phenomena at play in engine combustion chambers. The principal methods deployed and the key results obtained are now available in the OGST journal.
Retraction of a liquid ligament in viscous and inertial regimes: research at IFPEN revisits theoretical predictions
Having concluded that the Taylor-Culick velocity was only valid to evaluate the characteristic retraction time for a liquid in an inertial regime, researchers at IFPEN have proposed a velocity that is valid in a viscous regime.
