Flow Analysis of Spray Jet and Direct Jet Nozzle for Fire Water Monitor
In order to investigate the influence rules between the jet nozzle of fire water monitor and the jet performances, two typical jet nozzle, the spray jet and direct jet nozzle was designed to analysis the jet flow characteristics. Flow simulation of the jet nozzle was completed using fluent kits. The outlet velocity of the spray jet nozzle and direct jet nozzle were investigated in detail, and the influence rules of the nozzle structure on the outlet velocity was also discussed. The simulation results show that the steady velocity of the jet nozzle is about 34m/s that coinciding the contour magnitude, and the better extended length of the direct jet nozzle is about 50mm length that can improve the jet performances. The results can verify the reasonableness of the designed nozzle, it also can optimize the nozzle structure and increase the jet performance of the fire water monitor.
