Experimental results on the near field development of a
turbulent rectangular wall jet with aspect ratio 10, issuing from a
sharp-edged orifice at Reh ~ 23,000 are presented and discussed.
Hot wire X-probe measurements on cross plane grids provide
information on the 3D characteristics of the flow field. Mean
vorticity components were estimated by interpolation and
derivation from the mean velocity measurements. Contour plots
of flow characteristics are presented and discussed to uncover
some complex flow physics.
Papers presented to the 12th International Conference on Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, Costa de Sol, Spain on 11-13 July 2016.
