Trajectory and penetration of elliptical liquid jets emerged into a low speed cross flow of air are studied. The jets are introduced to the cross flow at different momentum ratios ranging from 1 to 300. The images are analyzed to obtain the trajectories of the outer boundary of the jets for two different aspect ratios. An empirical correlation is proposed for the present injector geometries and for the range of momentum ratio, Weber, and Reynolds numbers used in this study. Finally, a theoretical model for the trajectory of the liquid column for an initially elliptical liquid emerging into a cross flow is presented and the associated drag coefficients are obtained for a precise trajectory prediction.
