Penetration and Mixing Characteristics of Inclined Jets in Crossflow at Low Momentum Flux Ratios

Timothy M. WabelRahul B. Vishwanath


This study investigates the factors affecting low momentum jets that are injected at an angle relative to a crossflow stream, which is relevant to film-cooling technologies. Quantitative measurements of the jet fluid concentration were obtained based on planar laser induced fluorescence (PLIF) from acetone vapor that was seeded into the jet. The jets were injected at four different axial locations downstream of the leading edge of a flat plate, resulting in different boundary layer thicknesses at the injection location. At each location, the jet-to-crossflow momentum flux ratio was varied from 0.5–5. The jet centerline trajectories were affected not only by the momentum flux ratios, but also by the approaching crossflow boundary layer thickness, with the jets penetrating the least for the thickest boundary layers. Measurements of the jet fluid concentration along the jet centerline showed an exponential decay rate of −1.3 across all cases. However, the behavior in the immediate vicinity of the jet depended on the boundary layer thickness, with thicker boundary layers resulting in a slower decay. Hence, the concentration profiles were shifted relative to the injection point depending on the injector position on the plate. The co...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.
