 January 21, 1999, 13:46 IMPINGING JET PROBLEM #1 Chuck Leakeas Guest   Posts: n/a I have some questions about a circular impinging jet problem that I am working on. Here it is: I have a axisymmetric jet in which the Reynolds number inside the jet is 93, and the velocity profile given is for a laminar flow. When the flow leaves the nozzle and expands normally into a wall some distance away will the entire flow field still be laminar, or is there a chance that there may be some turbulence generated? If so, how would I know that there is turbulence? Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Chuck

If the jet is impinging against a wall then depending on the distance between the nozzle and the wall it could develope disturbances which could make it turbulent.

The Reynolds number inside the jet is 93 with a fully developed and laminar velocity profile. The centerline velocity is 100 m/s while the impinging surface is located 4 nozzle diameters away from the nozzle exit. Is there anyway to say for sure if there is turbulence generated near the impinging surface? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
