Similarity solution of axisymmetric non-Newtonian wall jets with swirl. (English) Zbl 1231.35170
Summary: The similarity solution of axisymmetric wall jets with swirl on bodies of revolution for non-Newtonian power-law fluids is presented. The physical and geometrical meaning of all parameters appearing in the course of similarity procedure is treated in detail. Especially, the functional dependence of length, velocity, and pressure similarity scales on the shape and swirl parameters and the power-law flow behaviour index is determined. The already published results [the author, J. Calcutta Math. Soc. 1, No. 1–2, 53–58 (2004; Zbl 1076.35091)] related to the similarity solution obtained are discussed.
