Abstract:

The similarity solution for the merging of two initially constant, infinite shear flows of Rott and Hakkinen has been ed to the merging of two different fluids. It was found that two parameters describe the physical properties of the two merging flow fields. The possibility of a vorticity-induced pressure gradient was con sidered in that case, the dependence on the fluid parameters is much more complicated. An application of particular interest is the initial entrainment of stagnant air by water and of stag nant water by air. Author
