Interaction of a submerged turbulent jet with a solid wall

  • 55 Accesses


The turbulent layer of a wall jet has been analyzed in many theoretical and experimental studies [1–10]. Most theoretical investigations are based on the simultaneous solution of the equations of the turbulent jet and the boundary layer that forms at the wall. The differences lie in the methods used to correlate the velocity and temperature distributions, as well as in the friction and heat-transfer laws employed. In this article we present a method based on the further development of the idea of conservation of the laws governing wall turbulence with respect to change in boundary conditions.
