In a series of recent works, R. Borghi and co-workers proposed a new Eulerian model of two-phase turbulent flows which introduced a transport equation for the average area of the liquid–gas interface. This work is devoted to the assessment of this model’s ability to predict the effects of liquid properties and injection regimes on the atomisation quality. Air-assisted atomisation, for which extensive experimental data are available, is chosen as a test case. It is shown that the model predictions are in good agreement with the observed trends for a wide range of variations of the liquid properties, such as density and surface tension, as well as the injection regimes, defined by the liquid and gas jet exit velocities.
