Abstract

The data on round jets in still air and in a general stream are analysed to determine the spread of the jet and the decay of the axial velocity distribution. The temperature distributions for heated jets are treated in the same way. Methods of model test technique for jets and jet aircraft are discussed; it is shown that the jet momentum is the most important quality in the representation of hot jets. Illustrations of the effect of jets on neighbouring surfaces, including the Coanda effect, are given, and finally an examination of the effect of jets on aircraft stability is made.
