The linearized solutions as applied to the half-jet mixing



Based on the linearized theory the Blasius equation is solved by a series solution. The method is applied to the laminar mixing of two parallel streams of different properties. An equation for the interface velocity as a function of the velocity ratio and the corresponding density-viscosity product ratio of the two streams is derived. Numerical results indicate that the series solution converges rapidly to the exact solution.
