Experimental data on the characteristics of the spray produced by a gas turbine engine airblast fuel injector are reported. The data acquired include the mass-flux distribution, measured by use of a high-resolution spray patternator; the gas-phase velocity field, measured by use of a two-component laser-Doppler velocimeter; and the liquid droplet size and velocity distributions, measured by use of a single-component phase-Doppler anemometer. The data are intended for use in assessments of two-phase flow computational methods as applied to combustor design procedures.
