Dispersion of Twin Inclined Fume Jets of a Variable Height within a CrossFlow
Twin elliptic inclined tandem jets are emitted within an oncoming cooler crossflow. The jets contain a non reactive fume whose dispersion is tracked all over the surrounding domain. Such a configuration may be found in chimney stacks, ships’ chimneys, etc. We propose to evaluate in the present paper the impact of the jets’ height on the resulting dispersion process. To reach this goal, a numerical simulation of a double jet model of variable height is carried out by means of the finite volume method together with a non uniform grid system. The model, validated by previous experimental data, allowed the tracking of the emitted fume by studying the evolution of a single particle contained within this fume, the Carbone dioxide (CO2) mass fraction. This is possible thanks to the assumption of handling a non reactive fume, which is adopted only to simplify the calculations. The CO2 mass fraction was mainly tracked between the emitting nozzles, in a try to find out the changes brought by the extension of the emitting jet nozzles on the flow trapped between them.
