The effects of a co-flow and inlet jet temperature on local entropy generation in turbulent round jets have been studied numerically. The second-order closure turbulence model has been used. The paper aims to discuss these issues.
Numerical results are presented and discussed.
The numerical results for the mean quantities, entrainment of air, mixing efficiency, generation of entropy rate and Merit number are presented and discussed.
The expansion of the jet at low velocity of the co-flow and high inlet jet temperature enhances the heat transfer rate and reduces the irreversibility of the jet.
