Large eddy simulations of two dimensional and rectangular jets impinging on a flat surface have been performed using a localized dynamic subgrid stress model. The 3D jet flow is characterized by backflow at the exit. Comparison of LES with direct numerical simulation shows good agreement and confirms the accuracy of the model and the boundary conditions used.
