 January 12, 2006, 05:51 Modelling Jet Flow in a current #1 Adrian Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all, So I've modelled the geometry of the jet nozzle, now I'd like to know how can I model the jet flow in a current properly. To be specific, what are the B.C. I should use at (i) upstream of the jet ? (ii) exit of the jet nozzle ? (iii) downstream of the jet ? I also want to know what's the usual practice in meshing such case, just let Gambit do the job? Adrian

 January 12, 2006, 08:00 Re: Modelling Jet Flow in a current #3 Adrian Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Ahmed, 1. say convergent nozzle 2. order of 1 cm 3. would you mind explaining what is C/O type of mesh? (sorry I'm new to CFD) 4. say, certain tracer is discharging to an uniform current in the form of a jet (free jet, without boundary effect), I want to obtain the pressure field and the velocity field induced by this jet (interaction between the ambient and the jet).

Note:U try to simulate Symmetry of the flow model dont take full model that is why i told consider symm Boundary conition on west. The real Physiscs flow had Entrain towards the domain from north and it should not give out of the flow (i.e not blowing out it has to suck towrds the Strong Stagnation region of the jet) If u need furthur deatils mail me I will xplain and provide me wat exactly u need with a sketch all the best Alex
