Abstract: The vortex dominated flow field in jets from notched circular nozzles is investigated using numerical simulation. The nozzle denoted as S-shape notched nozzle (S-nozzle) considered in the present study has a lip which is shaped by a sine wave with two peaks and two troughs. A normal circular nozzle with the same circular cross-section is also considered both for comparison and for a better understanding of the vortex formed in the jet flow field. The vortex dynamics resulting from these two different nozzles were visualized by using a novel numerical dye visualization technique. The results indicated that the generation of streamwise vortex-pairs is due to the interaction between two opposite motions; the inward motion of the ambient fluid towards the jet axis and outwardly spreading motion of jet fluid, induced by two neighboring primary vortex-rings. These streamwise vortex-pairs are generated inside and also outside the vortex-rings and spread outward as the vortex-rings convect downstream. Comparison of the S-nozzles flow shows that for the notched S-nozzles, streamwise vortex-pairs are produced only at the peak and trough locations, in the course of the formation of azimuthal vortex-rings. This is unlike the circular nozzle where the number of streamwise vortex-pairs formed would depend on Reynolds number.
