DIMOTAKIS, P. E. 1991 "Turbulent Free Shear Layer Mixing and Combustion,"High Speed Flight Propulsion Systems, in Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics 137, Ch. 5, 265-340.


Some experimental data on turbulent free-shear-layer growth, mixing, and chemical reactions are reviewed. The dependence of these phenomena on such fluid and flow parameters as Reynolds number, Schmidt number, and Mach number are discussed, with the aid of some direct consequences deducible from the large-scale organization of the flow as well as from some recent models.
