Abstract

Direct numerical simulation (DNS) is used to simulate the mixing of a passive scalar in a plane compressible and turbulent wall jet. The Mach number of the jet is M = 0.5 at the inlet. The downstream development of the jet is studied and compared to experimental data. Mixing in the inner and outer shear layers of the wall jet is investigated through scalar fluxes, the probability density function of the scalar concentration and the joint probability density function of the wall normal velocity fluctuation and the scalar concentration.
