Abstract [en]

An experimental analysis of the dominant instabilities in the near field of two coaxial jets is presented and discussed. Different inner/outer jet velocity pairs (U-i, U-o) have been tested in order to investigate the effect of both velocity ratio r(u) = U-o/U-i and Reynolds number. Three main instabilities have emerged depending on the velocity ratio. For r(u) < 0.75, the coaxial jets dynamic is driven by the inner shear layer. For r(u) > 1.6, the outer shear layer dominates the near field vortex dynamics while for r(u) nearly unitary, the vortex shedding behind the separating wall imposes its own dynamics. A new scaling relationship is proposed to improve the estimation of the shedding frequency with respect to the one found in literature.
