In the present paper, the characteristics of liquid film thickness inside prefilming airblast atomizers are investigated. An expression of liquid film thickness in three-dimensional axisymmetric coordinates is presented. The film thickness of kerosene and water is measured by using special techniques. It is found that the predictions of liquid film thickness agree well with experiments.
