Due to the effects of fan gas orifice, the spray angle on the X-Y plane is much larger than that on the X-Z plane, which is totally different from the single round or annular orifice jet.
First, the slurry was forced into the two-fluid nozzle by the aid of the compressed air which caused the formation of an air cone covered by the liquid membrane, dictated by the cone angle or spray angle, [theta].

The experimentation on the cooling jets requires the right choice of the hydrodynamic and geometric parameters such as; distance between sprayers and heated plate, nozzle spray angle, nozzles spacing, pressures rate and velocity of fluid [4], while, a number of authors have studied the effects of geometric and hydrodynamic parameters on the cooling of highly heated material.
According to Nathan, Statcast data show that the ball left the bat with an exit speed of [V.sub.0] = 107.1 mph, a vertical launch angle of [theta] = 20.8[degrees] and an initial spray angle of [[beta].sub.i] = 2.4[degrees] to the left of dead center field.
An eight-hole injector with nominal spray angle of 90 degrees was installed and operated under the fuel injection pressure of 12 MPa.
In addition, the new design features a "twist and lock" mechanism for easy refills and an angled refill nozzle that offers an unproved spray angle to create a wider dispersion area and a larger travel distance in any room, according to the company.
It can be seen from the average image in Figure 3 that the oxygen shears the ethanol and produces the flame spray angle. The breakup regime can be reflected by the flame spray angle.
Finally the spray angle is calculated by equations (3) and (4) and the Sauter Mean Diameter (SMD) is calculated from equation (5).
