In this paper, an experimental study and numerical simulation with openfoam software have been done. In this study effects of flow condition and geometrical parameters on spray characteristics of airblast atomizer have been investigated. In experimental, the droplet sizes (Sauter Mean Diameter) and their distributions have been determined in different Weber number 727 to 2250 and Reynolds number 1650, with using Malvern Master Sizer x. Numerical simulation was done based on discrete particle tracking method and Eulerian-Lagrangian approach. The results show that in constant Weber number, increasing of liquid injection port can increase SMD but in high Weber numbers has less effect. Numerical simulation shows that liquid injection angle and mixing length have low effect on penetration length of spray. On the other hand, increasing in liquid injection port diameter can decrease penetration length of spray strongly. Numerical simulation and experimental results have little difference and very similar to each other.
