Abstract

The evolution mechanism and characteristics of the submerged laminar round jet in a viscous homogenous shallow water layer is investigated through computational modeling. The model was run through rigorous mesh independence check to ensure the reliability of the simulation data. Two major simultaneous flow mechanisms during the evolution process are discovered and to quantify the observed flow patterns, three non-dimensional parameters Ln, Rn and dn are introduced as functions of the non-dimensional time tn. This research further discovered that major influence of injection duration only exists during the developing stage and has no influence on the functional relationships.
