This paper reports on a laboratory experiment conducted more than 30 years ago (Eli, 1974, unpublished), and recent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) investigations, focusing on the properties of a plane tangential jet produced by an apparatus called a “centrifugal nozzle.” The authors believe that the centrifugal nozzle has potential industrial applications in several areas related to fluid mixing and particulate matter suspension in mixing tanks. It is also believed that this experiment, or one similar, may provide data useful for benchmarking CFD models.
