A brief review of models of diesel fuel spray penetration, developed at the University of Brighton, are presented. These refer to the initial stage of spray penetration and the two-phase flow stage, when the relative velocity between droplets and gas can be ignored. The predictions of the two-phase models of spray penetration are compared with the results of experimental studies. A rapid compression diesel spray rig, based at Brighton University, and a high-pressure dimethyl ether spray chamber, based at Chungbuk National University, have been used. In both cases the experimental results are shown to be in agreement with the prediction of theoretical models.
