In this chapter we proceed with plane jets focusing, again, on the formation and development of longitudinal structures of laminar flow disturbances and their interaction with the Kelvin–Helmholtz vortices. Some visualization results on a free jet are presented and, then, a perturbed wall jet is considered in more detail.
