The action of a turbulent air flow on injected normally vertical elevated low-head axisymmetric jets has been investigated experimentally. Empirical formulas have been obtained for the geometry of the axes of isothermal and slightly nonisothermal jets and for dimensionless velocities and temperatures in their cross sections. It has been shown that the above jets are of a higher ejection ability in the transverse flow than submerged jets and wakes.
