Abstract The literature on jets is extensive but scattered. A concise guide is needed, and this paper attempts (at the risk of over-simplification) to summarise some of the available information, both theoretical and experimental (some of it obtained in the Department of Mechanical Engineering) on those jet properties which are important in engineering — velocity profile and decay, spread, entrainment and static pressure. Axisymmetric and plane free jets are considered, as well as those bounded by a flat surface (wall jets) or by a curved surface “Coanda” jets); and the surface static pressure developed beneath the latter is examined. The major properties are tabulated for comparison, and a selected bibliography is added for reference. Only the “engineering” properties of steady jets are treated; their turbulent structure, which has an extensive literature, is not considered. Copyright
