Abstract : An experimental investigation of stability is made of laminar viscous jets of a Newtonian fluid. The breakup length is measured by electrical means as a function of fluid properties, together with jet exit velocity and diameter. Nozzles with orifice plate exits, as well as long, cylindrical pipes, were tested. The conditions for the maximum breakup distance were determined, as well as the functional form of the breakup curve before and after the peak. The results are discussed in comparison to the other known sources of data, as well as the theories which are applicable. (Author)
