The atomization of a gelled boron slurry fuel using two commercially available airblast atomizers was studied at atmospheric pressure in non-reacting flow. The atomization of water was also characterized for comparison. Each atomizer was operated at two different liquid mass flow rates and several air/ fuel ratios. Drop size distribution was measured using a Malvern 2600 HSD Laser Diffraction Particle Sizer, Drop sizes acceptable for use in ramjet combustors could be obtained for the gelled slurry fuel from both atomizers. However, this required air/fuel ratios too high for practical applications. It appears that secondary atomization methods or different types of atomizers will be required to obtain high ramjet combustion efficiencies with these fuels if they are to be used over typical ramjet operating envelopes.
