Large Eddy Simulation of a Planar Co-Flowing Jet
- 325 Downloads
The flowfield of a planar co-flowing jet is investigated numerically by means of the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) technique. The fundamental instantaneous flow features are correctly captured. The results obtained for the time-averaged flow quantities agree well qualitatively with the experimental reference data. Quantitatively, the largest disagreement concerns the numerical overprediction of the turbulence intensities and the Reynolds shear-stress.
