Horizontal turbulent water vapour (steam) jets were discharged into ambient air from a circular convergent nozzle under unchoked/choked and saturated/superheated nozzle exit conditions, resulting in two-phase (liquid and vapour), two-fluid (air and water) condensing free jets. Flow properties and mixing characteristics have been measured with the aid of an isokinetic sampling probe arrangement. Radial and axial profiles of air and steam mass flow rates and mass fractions were measured from which entrainment, centreline decay and half-width spreading rates were calculated and compared with data from the literature. Overall, the mixing characteristics of the condensing jets are very similar to those of non-condensing jets extensively reported in the literature.
