Static Pressure Distribution in an Excited Jet: Some Observations (RESEARCH NOTE)


, Shiraz University of Technology, Iran


A plane subsonic jet was subjected to periodic oscillations in the near nozzle region by a twin vane system. During excitation, the jet was found to spread significantly and entrain mass much more than its steady counterpart. Time averaged static pressure measured in the flow field with a disc probe exhibited prominent well defined suction regions different from that of a steady jet.
