The present study was performed to experimentally investigate the regime of the liquid sheet breakup and the effects of dimensionless numbers on the penetration and trajectory of the liquid sheet in cross flow condition. The shadowgraphy technique was applied to study the tests. In this work, the effect of the non-dimensional numbers (momentum ratio and Weber number) were surveyed on the breakup of the liquid sheet. Also, some equations for the injection trajectory, the length, and the height of the jet were presented based on these non-dimensional numbers. The tests were done at atmospheric pressure and temperature, where the Weber number range is from 0.8 to 12.5, the variations of the momentum ratio are from 17.4 to 250, and the changes in the Reynolds number are from 2400 to 10227. Three regimes of jet breakup were observed, defined as column breakup, column-bag breakup, and bag breakup. The Weber number is the most effective parameter in the regime change of the liquid sheet breakup. The results also indicated that the increase in the momentum ratio has a great influence on the depth of penetration of the liquid sheet, but it has a very small effect on the breakup regimes.
