A basis for the comparison of engine spray penetration studies with hot and cold bomb methods, and the liquid injection technique for studying penetration is presented.
A spray penetration formula is developed from experimental information on gas jet mixing, with a correction for fuel density.
Agreement between the spray penetration formula developed here, and experimental data from a variety of sources is found to exist.
