Hello All,

I am simulating a nozzle flow in which a gas comes out of a convergent nozzle and mixes with surrounding atmosphere before impinging onto a surface normal to the jet flow direction. Both the gases (nozzle flow gas and atmosphere) are miscible.

1. How do I judge if I should use a turbulence model. If by Reynolds number, what should be the characteristic length for a convergent nozzle ?

2. Can jet mixing be always considered turbulent?

3. Is impinging jet always turbulent ?

Thank You!!

The Reynolds number for a round jet is:

Re = {U_j\, D\over \nu}

Where the characteristic length is the diameter D.

For more details you can check the section 5.1 of the book of Pope "Turbulent flows".
