• ANALYSIS OF A TWO DIMENSIONAL IDEAL JET FLOW

F. Guechi*

Abstract


In this paper, a free surface flow of a liquid poured from a container is calculated analytically for various configurations of the lip. The flow is assumed to be steady, two dimensional, and irrotational. The liquid is treated as inviscid and incompressible. The effect of gravity is neglected. It is shown that there are jet like flows and other flows with one free surface which follow along the underside of the lip or spout. Some of the results are applicable also to flows over weirs and spillways. We use the method of Kirchhoff based on the hodograph method and Schwartz-Christoffel transformation technique to solve the problem for various values β of the inclination angle between the horizontal bottom and the inclined wall.

Keywords


Free surface, flow, hodograph method, free streamlines theory.
