Abstract : Combined flow visualization and quantitiative data for the defined region geometry are presented and interpreted. From these data, a flow model for the interaction region and some observations on the character of the resultant jet are presented. The flow model provides an explanation of the greater than ambient pocket pressure which allows this geometry to be used for a high-gain proportional amplifier. (Author)
