USING AXIAL FLOW
Investigation of fundamental physics
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
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).
