Nowadays, the transportation industries are still growing although sources of petroleum fuels are depleting. Thus, to meet the demand for fuels, alternative fuels such as alcohol fuel and bio fuel could be used. Many countries such as Brazil, United States and Germany have started using alcohol based fuels for transportation instead of petroleum fuels. Spray concept is applied in the combustion chamber. However, the characteristics of alcohol sprays are not well understood. Thus, there is a need to develop a fundamental study on alcohols spray. The objective of the project is to study the characteristics of different types of alcohol sprays in relation to combustion. The study will focus on two major components. Firstly, the study will focus on microscopic characteristics such as droplet size and mean velocity. To determine the microscopic characteristics, Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA) and Phase Doppler Anemometry (PDA) shall be used. LDA is used to measure mean velocity while PDA is used to measure the size of fuel droplets. The second component is on the observation of the structure of alcohol sprays at the nozzle exit. The observation shall be done using a high speed camera. All the results are analyzed to further understand on the characteristics of alcohol sprays.
