Abstract:

A low speed wind tunnel test of a four-foot diameter circular plate model with up to three exhausting jets was conducted to determine surface static pressure distributions, jet paths, and jet decay characteristics in the presence of a crossflow. Two-jet arrangements were tested with the jets exiting normal to the plate for three different spacings between the two jets and at a number of velocity ratios and sideslip angles. Three-jet configuration data were obtained with the jets exiting normal to the plate for a number of velocity ratios and sideslip angles. As a result of this investigation, several conclusions are deduced pertaining to the interaction of multiple jets exhausting into a crossflow. The report is the third of four volumes. The test model, instrumentation, test procedure, and reduction and accuracy of the test data were discussed in Volume 1. The present volume contains additional data pertaining to the two-jet configurations. Author
