“This work is focused on improving the knowledge of physical and morphological characteristics of aviation fuel injection sprays with application in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). This work is carried out by means of the combination of complex and singular experimental techniques such as an optical engine and Schlieren technique with modelling tools.”
