 August 9, 2001, 23:07 Impinging Jet Modeling Problem #1 Anindya Guest   Posts: n/a I am trying to model an impinging jet . There is a nozzle through which air is exiting vertically downwards and hitting the ground. I have two questions about it. 1) what would be the top boundary condition besides (next to) the inlet? Is it pressure or Inlet with zero U and V velocities? If I put Inlet condition bc there with zero U and V , then what values do I put for k and epsilon there ? 2) What are the values of inlet turbulent kinetic energies and dissipation which I need to specify for the inlet jet using k-epsilon model? I am using both FLUENT and STARCD for analysis. Thanks

B) Put k=10, e=10 C) Solve it D) Validate and verify before proceeding with further complex problems. By the way, what is the jet velocity u r using ? DC
