Novel Characteristics of Subsonic Coflowing Jets With Varying Lip Thickness

Naren Shankar Radha Krishnan, Dilip Raja Narayana


Effect of Mach number on coflowing jet at lip thickness of 0.2 Dp, 1.0 Dp and 1.5 Dp (where Dp is primary nozzle exit diameter, 10 mm) at Mach numbers 1.0, 0.8 and 0.6 were studied experimentally. It was found that an increase in Mach number does not have any profound effect on axial total and static pressure variation for 0.2 Dp. Decreasing the mean diameter is due to the geometrical constraints. In this study, the primary nozzle dimension and secondary duct is maintained constant for comparison. For the case of 0.2 Dp, static pressure is almost equal to atmospheric pressure for all Mach numbers. Whereas for other two lip thickness, increase in Mach number marginally influences axial total pressure and profoundly varies static pressure. It is noted that it varies considerably up to 11.1% in the axial direction and up to 17% in the radial direction for Mach number 1.0. For lower Mach numbers, such variation is not observed. Increase in Mach number increases static pressure variation in the coflowing jet flow field with lip thickness 1.0 Dp and 1.5 Dp.
