Numerical simulation of water jet breakup under the influence of flow velocity oscillations


Numerical investigations of forced water jet breakup under the influence of harmonic oscillations of the inlet velocity are carried out. An adequate model is used. Areas of jet breakup regimes under the influence of sinusoidal oscillations are determined.
