Particulate turbulent jets are crucial in several fields of earth science, physics and engineering. In particular turbulent jets are characterized by the entrainment of fresh irrotational air into the turbulent core. The coupling of the particle dynamics with the jet entrainment may affect the dynamics of droplet evaporation/condensation in clouds or in spray injectors.
