In this collaborative research study between VIT (Vellore Institute of Technology) and our institute, the spray characteristics of a fuel surrogate (cyclopentane) at sub- and transcritical conditions relevant to IC engine and rocket injections were experimentally evaluated. Spray measurements were conducted by shadowgraphy and Mie scattering techniques to recognize the phase change behavior of the spray. A simplified artificial neural networks (ANN) model was developed for predicting the spray cone angles and spray penetration lengths.
