Abstract : A low speed wind tunnel test of a four-foot diameter circular plate model with up to three exhausting jets was conducted to determine surface static pressure distributions, jet paths, and jet decay characteristics in the presence of a crossflow. Three-jet configuration data were obtained with the jets exiting normal to the plate for a number of velocity ratios and sideslip angles. As a result of this investigation, several conclusions are deduced pertaining to the interaction of multiple jets exhausting into a crossflow. (Author)
