In this work, the Navier–Stokes equations are solved for a laminar, round jet in a large confinement. The flow is characterized as a function of the enclosure-to-jet diameter ratio, in the range 40–100, and the Reynolds numbers at jet inlet in the range 32–65. Results for jet decay and half width suggest that near the jet inlet the flow is identical to a free jet but eventually deviates away from the jet inlet. We develop a set of correlations including the jet centerline velocity and the jet half width, and features of the transition regions in the flow field.
