Abstract:

The flow fields of a steady and a periodically pulsed two-dimensional turbulent free jet have been studied by solving the thin shear layer equations by the Keller Box method in transformed variable form. A constant eddy-viscosity formulation was used to model the Reynolds shear stress term. For the steady jet, calculations agree well with documented experimental data. Computed results of the unsteady jet indicate that the mean flow characteristics follow closely those of the steady jet and compare well with available experimental data. For sufficiently high frequency and amplitude of pulsation or at large streamwise distance, significant unsteady effects occur in the instantaneous quantities. Author
