Abstract

In an effort to resolve some controversies regarding the turbulent mixing-layer structure, the near field of a large (18 cm diameter) air jet was investigated for the jet exit speed of 30 ms SUP - SUP 1. The smoke-laden axisymmetric mixing layer was illuminated by a thin sheet of laser light in an azimuthal plane passing through the jet axis. A few picture sequences, from high-speed visualization films, depicting space-time evolutions of the structure of the layer are presented. (from authors' abstract)
