The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of injection parameters on the injection and spray characteristics of dimethyl ether and diesel fuel. In order to analyze the injection and spray characteristics of dimethyl ether and diesel fuel with employing high-pressure common-rail injection system, the injection characteristics such as injection delay, injection duration, and injection rate, spray cone angle and spray tip penetration was investigated by using the injection rate measuring system and the spray visualization system. In this work, the experiments of injection rate and spray visualization are performed at various injection parameters. It was found that injection quantity was decreased with the increase of injection pressure at the same energizing duration and injection pressure In the case of injection characteristics, dimethyl ether showed shorter of injection delay, longer injection duration and lower injected mass flow rate than diesel fuel in accordance with various energizing durations and injection pressures. Also, spray development of dimethyl ether had larger spray cone angle than that of diesel fuel at various injection pressures. Spray tip penetration was almost same development and tendency regardless of injection angles.
