Summary

The equations of momentum and continuity of a free, axisymmetrical jet for an incompressible, inelastic, non-Newtonian fluid in isothermal flow are solved. Using the boundary layer approximations and a similarity transformation the resulting non-linear third order ordinary differential equation is solved numerically. Velocity profiles are obtained and compared to previously known solutions for the two-dimensional jet. The significance of the results is discussed in detail.
