Abstract:

Semi-empirical formulas previously proposed by the present author to estimate the characteristics of the peripheral jet of ACV are re-examined for wider range of operating conditions and jet discharge angles and it has turned out that the proposed method is applicable with slight corrections. Numerical calculations are made for all the possible cases in the practical operation and the results are given in tabular forms. Author
