Abstract:

A theoretical and experimental study was made to investigate the flow characteristics of circular uniform jets impinging normally on a ground plane in order to further the understanding of the aerodynamic processes associated with ground particle entrainment in the impinging downwash of VTOL aircraft. Particular emphasis was placed on the flow properties in the ground-plane boundary layer where entrainment occurs.
