Abstract : The objectives of this study were to correlate jet mixing data to establish mixing model coefficients and to produce empirical correlations of jet core length and centerline decay rate. A literature review containing 312 jet mixing experiments is reported. Turbulent jet mixing coefficients for 249 experiments are correlated, resulting in predictions of core length and decay rate for all experiments with an error of about 20-25%. Empirical correlations of core length and decay rate are also presented which give direct engineering estimates of these parameters with an error about 20-25% without the use of a jet mixing model.
