A subtle change in the nozzle shape of the outer stream causes the flow to mix more vigorously.  This phenomenon is exploited to enhance mixing in a variety of applications

The phenomenon exemplified by these images involves axial injection of a gas at special conditions that can:

  • Enhance mixing of the gas itself.   This is called  Jet Self Excitation (JSE).  See example.

  • Enhance mixing of an arbitrary flow (gas or liquid) adjacent to or surrounded by the unstable gas.  This is called  Mixing Enhancement via Secondary Parallel Injection  (MESPI).   See example.
