Vertical turbulent jet
Hello Foamers,

I am quite a newbie in your community, so I may be excused if my question has been posed and answered already.

I am trying to simulate a round vertical turbulent jet that it is generated from a point source (orifice). The jet's fluid has slightly different density (smaller) from the ambient fluid. To begin with I don't know what kind of solver should I use. InterFoam seems suitable but on the other hand I don't know if it integrates the buoyant forces that are created due to the density differences.

Thanks in advance
