Numerical simulation of two-dimensional laminar slot-jet impingement flows confined by a parallel wall. (English) Zbl 1388.76274

Summary: Two-dimensional laminar incompressible impinging slot-jet is simulated numerically to gain insight into flow characteristics.Computations are done for vertically downward-directed slot-jets impinging on a plate at the bottom and confined by a parallel surface on top. The behaviour of the jet with respect to aspect ratio (AR) and Reynolds number \((Re)\) are described in detail. The computed flow patterns for various AR (2-5) and for a range of jet-exit Reynolds numbers (100-500) are analysed to understand the flow characteristics. The transient development of the flow is also simulated for AR = 4 and \(Re = 300\). It is found that the reattachment length is dependent on both AR and Reynolds number for the range considered. The correlation for reattachment length is suggested. The maximum resultant velocity \(V_{\text{rmax}}\) and its trajectory is reported. A detailed study of horizontal velocity profile at different downstream locations is reported. It is found that the effect of Reynolds number and AR is significant to the bottom wall vorticity in the impingement and wall jet regions.
