injectorType and injectorModel

I'm trying to understand the implementation of particle injections in the dieselSpray class. So, I have some basic questions about injector models and injector types.

I've understood it as the injector type defines the area, position and direction of the injection. Plus properties as massflow, injection time, Cd, number of parcels etc..

...And the injector model, determines the shape and the size of the spray from different variables depending on model. These sprays are located at positions determined in .C-file of the injector type.

I'm currently concentrating on the unitInjector and hollowConeInjector.

Is my interpretation totally wrong?

Thankful for answers
