The turbulent/non-turbulent interface at the outer boundary of a self-similar turbulent jet

The turbulent/non-turbulent interface at the outer boundary of a self-similar turbulent jet The flow at the outer boundary of a submerged self-similar turbulent jet at Re=2×103 is investigated experimentally by means of combined particle image velocimetry (PIV) laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) measurements. The jet fluid contains a fluorescent dye so that the LIF data can be used to discriminate between the jet fluid and the ambient fluid. The axial velocity, Reynolds stress, and vorticity are determined relative to the jet boundary. The results are compared against the conventional profiles, and the results of a direct numerical simulation of the turbulent far-wake behind a flat plate. The results show a sharp transition between rotational and irrotational fluid at the fluid interface, and the existence of a layer of irrotational velocity fluctuations outside the turbulent region.
