Note on the similarity solutions of unsteady jets in rotating fluids

  • A. S. Narayanan
  • R. Devanathan


The structure of time dependent jets in rotating fluid using similarity transformations is studied theoretically for which exact solutions are discussed. Approximate solution using a modified von Mises transformation is also explored.
