Diesel Spray Test Facility

Home  /  Facilities  /  Diesel Spray Test Facility

The AMC Diesel Spray Chamber is a constant volume chamber of dimensions large enough to allow the study of long sprays relevant to marine propulsion engines.

Measurements of spray geometry, droplet velocities and droplet sizes are used to enhance understanding of the dynamics of sprays and to calibrate the complex computer models which are used to design engine combustion systems for reduced emissions of oxides of nitrogen, particulate matter and greenhouse gases.
