Nozzle Induced Flow
We have modeled flow paths generated by nozzles inside a vessel or tank, and are trying to understand the hydraulics of induced flow around the outside of the nozzle. In particular, we are interested in knowing if induced flow increases proportionately with flow/velocity, or if the change is not proportionate, and if so, does the flow increase at an increasing rate or a decreasing rate? I am trying to find any fluid dynamics topics on this, but cannot locate. Any ideas?
