Paper Abstract

This paper presents fundamental research work on jet dissipation in pipes and closed chambers in order to study the details of flow pattern, velocity distribution, and energy reduction. The effects of chamber dimensions and jet heights are also investigated. Experiments were carried out with air and water jets being discharged into a pipe. The ratio of pipe to nozzle diameter (B/D) was varied between 3 and 12. The axial maximum velocity and the lateral distribution of velocity across the pipe were measured up to a distance of 20 diameters downstream. The results should have industrial applications in all fields on engineering.
