Abstract

The fluid mechanics and mixing process of steady, laminar, finite and opposed-jets are theoretically investigated. A finite-volume method is employed to numerically solve the corresponding transport equations. Calculated results are compared with the analytical similarity solutions and the experimental data for two cases of the non-identical opposed-jets, constituted by two different fluids, without rigid-body rotation and the identical opposed-jets with rigid-body rotation. Agreements show that the numerical solutions obtained from the complete transport equations yield accurate predictions, while the similarity solutions yield fair predictions under some limitations.
