Structure and mixing of a transverse jet in incompressible flow

  • J. E. Broadwell (a1) and R. E. Breidenthal (a1) (a2)

The flow field induced by a jet in incompressible cross-flow is analysed and the results compared with those obtained in a reacting water-jet experiment. It is argued that the axial vortex pair in the flow arises from the jet momentum normal to the free stream, the momentum flux being equivalent to a normal force, i.e. to a lift.
