Abstract

Isothermal turbulent mixing of an axisymmetric primary air jet with a low velocity annular secondary air stream inside a constant diameter cylindrical enclosure is predicted. The flow domain from the inlet to the fully developed downstream locations is considered. The predicted flow field properties include the mean velocity and pressure and the Reynolds stresses. Different velocity and diameter ratios between the primary and the secondary jets have been investigated to characterize the flow in terms of these parameters. A bounded stream-wise differencing scheme is used to minimize numerical diffusion and oscillation errors. Predictions are compared with available experimental data to back up numerical findings.
