The Effect of the Free Surface on a Round Jet


The images shown above are sequential cross sections of a round jet at 3.5 diameters downstream of the nozzle visualized using laser-induced fluorescence. Figures 1 and 2 show the flow field of the jet 1 diameter below the free surface, while Figs. 3 and 4 are images of the submerged jet. Except for the presence of the free surface, the flow conditions are identical with a Reynolds number of 4000 based on the jet diameter and exit velocity.
