An Approach for Determining Confidence Intervals for Common Spray Statistics
The statistical analysis of spray data is a possible application for a resampling statistical technique called bootstrap. Bootstrap is a numerical technique for making statistical inferences on data when assumptions about the population distribution are unrealistic and/or the spray statistics are very complex. Application of the technique for determining confidence intervals for Sauter mean diameter and 90% cumulative volume diameter is demonstrated with drop size data from two automotive fuel injectors.
