Abstract:

Experimental and theoretical programs are being conducted to aid in the development of an operational warm fog dispersal system using momentum-driven ground-based heat sources. In previous investigations, the wind was in the same direction as the jet coflowing. The present investigation is concerned with a jet opposite in direction to the ambient wind counterflowing or opposing jet. A model for calculating the dynamic characteristics of a cold counter-flowing jet has been extended to take account of the effect of heating upon the jet. The effect of buoyancy upon the motion of the jet will be presented in a subsequent report.
