Title: Mixing characteristics of a ducted, elliptical jet with dump

Abstract

Mixing between elliptical ducted air-jets with dump and nitrogen radially injected through the duct walls was experimentally studied using hot-wire anemometry and gas-sampling techniques. Mixing was considerably increased when the air-jet was issued from elliptical relative to circular jet-exit cross-sections. Elliptical jets issued from orifices provided better mixing than issued from pipes. Additional mixing enhancement was achieved when the elliptical jets were acoustically forced by excited resonant pressure waves of the duct. The mean and turbulence velocity measurements provided insight into the mechanism of the observed mixing enhancement.

  • An experimental study of mixing downstream of coaxial jets discharging into an expanded circular duct was conducted to obtain data for the evaluation and improvement of turbulent transport models currently used for combustor flow modeling. A combination of turbulent momentum transport rate and two velocity component data were obtained from simultaneous measurements with a two-color LV system. A combination of turbulent mass transport rate, concentration and velocity data were obtained from simultaneous measurements with laser velocimeter (LV) and laser induced fluorescence (LIF) systems. These measurements were used to obtain mean, second central moment, skewness and kurtosis values for three velocitymore » components and the concentration. These measurements showed the existence of countergradient turbulent axial mass transport where the annular jet fluid was accelerating the inner jet fluid. Results from the study are related to the assumptions employed in the current mass and momentum turbulent transport models.« less
  • An investigation was conducted of two-stream, variable-density, turbulent jet mixing with recirculation confined within an axisymmetric duct that simulated a combustor configuration. The recirculating flow fields in the combustor simulator were the result of coaxial jet mixing between a central, primary air stream with a velocity of about 650 ft/sec and an annular secondary stream of hydrogen with velocities of 13, 23, or 48 ft/sec, depending on the desired test conditions. Experimental measurements are presented of radial distributions of time-averaged axial velocity and hydrogen mass fraction, axial distributions of time-averaged static pressure on the duct wall, axial velocity on themore » duct centerline, and hydrogen mass fraction on the duct wall and on the duct centerline. A theoretical study of the experimental flows was also conducted using a finite difference numerical solution technique for the calculation of viscous, recirculating flows. Comparison of theory and experiment shows that the predictive technique and the turbulence transport model require further development before accurate prediction of recirculating turbulent flows can be realized.« less
  • The JET neutral injection beam line consists of a large neutral injection box (approx. 7m x 3.6m x 3m) with eight 'PINI's' (Plug-In Neutral Injector) attached to its back panel. The PINI's are mounted in two vertical banks of four. The charged particles are separated from the neutrals during the passage through a deflection magnet and are subsequently intercepted by full energy ion dumps and fractional energy ion dumps. The neutralized beam can be intercepted by a calorimeter which can be rotated out of the beam to allow injection into the plasma. The design of the calorimeter and full energymore » ion dump are the subject matter of this paper.« less
  • The effect of tool rotation on the density porosity predicted in elliptical boreholes by a nuclear logging-while-drilling density (LWD) measurement is studied using Monte Carlo modeling techniques. Laboratory calibration of such borehole conditions would be difficult. The response of a dual-detector device is calculated by rotating the sonde in the elliptical hole and associated porosity corrections are computed by two averaging procedures, one over the entire borehole and the other over the quadrant of closest contact. An equivalent circular borehole procedure to represent the rotation in elliptical holes is then postulated and successfully tested in the Monte Carlo model tomore » eliminate the large number of CPU-intensive direct Monte Carlo simulations that were found necessary in the elliptical well bore configuration.« less
  • The Waste Treatment Plant (WTP) under construction at the Hanford Site will use pulse jet mixer (PJM) technology for mixing and gas retention control applications in tanks expected to contain waste slurries exhibiting a non-Newtonian rheology. This paper presents the results of theoretical and experimental studies undertaken to establish a methodology to perform reduced-scale mixing tests with PJM systems in non-Newtonian fluids. A theoretical model for mixing cavern formation from steady and pulsed jets is developed and compared with data from a single unsteady jet in a yield stress simulant. Dimensional analysis is used to identify the important dimensionless parametersmore » affecting mixing performance in more complex systems. Scaling laws are proposed based on the modeling and dimensional analysis. Experimental validation of the scaling laws governing unsteady jet mixing in non-Newtonian fluids are also presented. Tests were conducted at three scales using two non-Newtonian simulants. The data were compared non-dimensionally, and the important scale laws were confirmed. The key dimensionless parameters were found to be the Strouhal number (which describes unsteady pulse jet mixer operation), the yield Reynolds number (which governs cavern formation due to non-Newtonian fluid behavior), and the viscous Reynolds number (which determines the flow regime and the degree of turbulence). The experimentally validated scaling laws provide the basis for reduced scale testing of prototypic WTP mixing systems. It is argued that mixing systems developed from reduced scale testing will produce conservative designs at full scale.« less
