An incompressible, inviscid irrotational flow model was used to represent the normal impingement of a circular axisymmetric jet upon a flat plate. An analytical investigation was conducted to determine the free surface of the jet and the solution of the potential flow problem was obtained using finite difference techniques for jet height-to-nozzle radius ratio of 2.4.
The velocity and pressure distributions at the plate surface and along the jet centerline were obtained.
The results from the finite difference solution are in close agreement with other most recent results from available experimental, and approximate solutions to the potential flow problem.
