About this book

There are relatively few texts currently available in the field of liquid atomization and these are mostly prepared from theoretical or experimental viewpoints and often with emphasis on fuel sprays for combustion purposes. This book provides a critical and extensive compilation of the wide range of manufacturing processes that involve the application of spray technology in industry. It covers design of atomizers as well as the performance of plant and their corresponding spray systems. The content of the book covers the needs of practising engineers from different disciplines, who may include project managers, and works, maintenance and design engineers. It addresses the lack of in-depth understanding, in the area of the application of spray in industry. Of interest to researchers is the field of liquid sprays, information on fundamental processes involved is discussed, including outlines of the contemporary and possible future research and challenges in the different fields of application.
These are all dealt with within the following general framework:

• sprays and their production;

• sprays in industrial production processes;

• processes involving vaporisation and cooling or cleaning of gases;

• processes involving spray surface impact;

• fuel sprays for fixed plant;

• spraying of hot surfaces for steel making and other metals;

• spraying of molten metals.

Wherever possible guidance is given in respect to the analysis and interpretation of experimental data obtained using different measurement techniques in industrial spray processes.

About the authors

Dr Ghasem Nasr was head of the Division of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Stockport College, England before taking up his present post. He has been involved with sprays and atomization and heat transfer for 15 years in both industry and academia. He has a number of publications in his area of interest and leads the atomization and sprays group, which carries out funded projects. He has also acted as a consultant for major companies in Middle East, Eastern and Western Europe in spray-related matters.

Andrew Yule is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UMIST, Manchester, England and he is the leader and founder of the Atomization and Sprays Research Group at UMIST. He has 25 years experience in research in many areas of spray production and utilisation and is consultant for several companies. He was a founder of The Institute of Liquid Atomizations and Spray Systems-Europe, has authored 150 papers and was coauthor of the book Atomization of Melts (OUP, 1994).

Mr Lothar Bendig is technical director of the Research and Development department of Lechler GmBH and Co.KG, a leading German manufacturer of spray nozzles and spray equipment. As a physicist he has 28 years experience in mechanics, fluid dynamics, acoustics, heat transfer and spray technology. He is chairman of ILASS Europe.
