Experimental Study Of The Interaction Of Multiple Jets With A Cross Flow

Kakkattukuzhy M. Isaac, Missouri University of Science and Technology


This paper discusses the results from an experimental study of twin jets injected normal to a cross flow at a jet:cross-flow velocity ratio of 2. Turbulence data from hot-wire anemometry are presented and comparison is made with single-jet data of the present and earlier studies. The profiles of mean velocities and Reynolds stresses for the single and tandem jets show very similar behavior, indicating that the turbulent nature of the jet/s is caused by the same mechanism/s for both configurations. © 1985 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., All rights reserved.
