This paper presents visualization and image processing of spray structure affected by cavitation bubbles and cavitating flow patterns. Experiments were conducted for a better understanding of cavitation and resulting flow regimes. Cavitation is generated with sudden pressure drop across a 4.5 mm long short micro-channel with an inner diameter of 152 μm connected to the setup using proper fittings. Generated cavitation bubbles and fluid flow patterns were observed by using a high speed camera. The spray structure was observed in four different segments and mainly the droplet evaluation in the lower segments for low upstream pressures was analyzed using several image processing techniques including contrast adjustments and morphological operators. Moreover, fluid flow regimes for different upstream pressures were investigated, and the flow patterns were analyzed in the separated regions of the spray.
