The turbulent mixing of confined axisymmetric incompressible jets was studied, using the turbulent boundary layer equations in terms of transformed von Mises variables, with semi-empirical formulations of the turbulent transport coefficients. The solution was obtained by the method of finite differences. Analytical predictions of the jet mixing flow fields were obtained for several configurations, covering a resonably wide range of values of the problem parameters. A turbulent mixing model which satisfactorily predicts mean flow profiles for a reasonably broad spectrum of flow conditions has been formulated.
