Calculation of axisymmetric jets and wakes with a three-equation model of turbulence Journal Article uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • The concept of diffusion by bulk convection formulated by Bradshaw is applied to the transport equations for the turbulent kinetic energy, turbulent shear stress and an integral length scale. The resulting set of hyperbolic partial differential equations is solved by an explicit finite-difference scheme for the cases of incompressible axisymmetric wakes and jets in a coflowing air stream. It is found that the profiles of mean velocity and shear stress are almost insensitive to the empirical input whereas the profiles of kinetic energy are very sensitive.
