In this chapter, results of experimental studies on the influence of initial conditions at the nozzle exit and acoustic perturbations on a plane jet structure and characteristics of its evolution and stability are considered. Basic features of the laminar and turbulent plane jets at one and the same Reynolds number are demonstrated. It is found that the jets are subjected to sinusoidal oscillations suppressing the varicose mode of instability.
