|Issue Date:||Apr-2004||Citation:||New, T.H., Lim, T.T., Luo, S.C. (2004-04). A flow field study of an elliptic jet in cross flow using DPIV technique. Experiments in Fluids 36 (4) : 604-618. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00348-003-0733-7||Abstract:||The digital particle image velocimetry (DPIV) technique has been used to investigate the flow fields of an elliptic jet in cross flow (EJICF). Two different jet orientations are considered; one with the major axis of the ellipse aligned with the cross flow (henceforth referred to as a low aspect ratio (AR) jet), and the other with the major axis normal to the cross flow (henceforth referred to as a high aspect ratio jet). Results show that the vortex-pairing phenomenon is prevalent in the low aspect ratio jet when the velocity ratio (VR)≥3, and is absent in the high aspect ratio jet regardless of the velocity ratio. The presence of vortex pairing leads to a substantial increase in the leading-edge peak vorticity compared to the lee-side vorticity, which suggests that vortex pairing may play an important role in the entrainment of ambient fluid into the jet body, at least in the near-field region. In the absence of vortex pairing, both the leading-edge and the lee-side peak vorticity increase monotonically with velocity ratio regardless of the aspect ratio. Moreover, time-averaged velocity fields for both AR=0.5 and AR=2 jets reveal the existence of an "unstable focus" (UF) downstream of the jet, at least for VR≥2. The strength and the location of this focus is a function of both the velocity ratio and aspect ratio. In addition, time-averaged vorticity fields show a consistently higher peak-averaged vorticity in the low aspect ratio jet than in the high aspect ratio jet. This behavior could be due to a higher curvature of the vortex filament facing the cross flow in the low aspect ratio jet, which through mutual interaction may lead to higher vortex stretching, and therefore higher peak-averaged vorticity.||Source Title:||Experiments in Fluids||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/54157||ISSN:||07234864||DOI:||10.1007/s00348-003-0733-7|
