 October 12, 2007, 09:17 Re: supersonic flows #2 pc Guest   Posts: n/a First of all, you shouldn't use the Euler equations for jets because most jets are turbulent. Second, the Euler equations are appropriate for any supersonic flow where viscous effects are negligible. Third, available experimental data will depend on what class of problem you're looking for.

 October 12, 2007, 20:57 Re: supersonic flows #4 pc Guest   Posts: n/a If your particles are large enough that they are not affected by the gas phase, an Euler assumption may be sufficient. However if the particles are smaller, by neglecting turbulence, your calculations will omit the radial spread of the particles due to turbulent interactions. Particle trajectories are known to be affected (dispersed) by turbulent eddies.

 October 12, 2007, 22:53 Re: supersonic flows #6 pc Guest   Posts: n/a It depends on the particle density, but I would say anything below 20 microns will definitely be subject to dispersion by turbulence. There are numerous papers in the literature on turbulent dispersion of particles in shear layers and jets, but most papers I know of are at low speeds. Look up Stochastic Separated Flow (SSF) models. Good luck.
