Abstract

Spray behaviour of marine cylinder lubricant was investigated experimentally using high-speed shadowgraphictechniques. Through the use of an optical liner and optical nozzle, spray behaviour has been characterised in theseregions: in-nozzle flow, near-nozzle and free spray breakup, and liner impingement. The effects of viscosity areprominently visible in each of these areas. Cavitation has been shown to play a key role in the lubricant injectionsystem, with the spray splitting into two distinct sprays at low viscosities.
