The fuel-air mixing during burning process provides significant effects to the fuel atomization and flame development thus predominantly influences to the behavior of particulate matter (PM) and NOx production. The variant in fuel injection characteristics are widely used in the field of burner system nowadays. Spray nozzles having various operating conditions dependedon the design of nozzle and it was precision components designed to perform very specific spray characteristics under specific conditions. This review paper focuses on spray characteristics, effects of geometry of injector, influence of fuel and hole shaped nozzle with cylindrical and conical holes on spray characteristics. The parameters are discussed based on an overview of the research in the field of simulations with nozzle shaped injectors. Massive researchers had reported that conical nozzle hole is better than cylindrical nozzle due to it contributed suppression of cavitation in nozzle hole, slowed down primary breakup process and thus produced larger spray droplets, high spray penetration
