SlotJet

class acoular.environments.SlotJet

Bases: FlowField

Provides an analytical approximation of the flow field of a slot jet, see Albertson et al., 1950.

v0 = Float(0.0, desc='exit velocity')

Exit velocity at jet origin, i.e. the nozzle. Defaults to 0.

origin = CArray(dtype=float64, shape=(3,), value=array((0.0, 0.0, 0.0)), desc='center of nozzle')

Location of a point at the slot center line, defaults to the co-ordinate origin.

flow = CArray(dtype=float64, shape=(3,), value=array((1.0, 0.0, 0.0)), desc='flow direction')

Unit flow direction of the slot jet, defaults to (1,0,0).

plane = CArray(dtype=float64, shape=(3,), value=array((0.0, 1.0, 0.0)), desc='slot center line direction')

Unit vector parallel to slot center plane, defaults to (0,1,0).

B = Float(0.2, desc='nozzle diameter')

Width of the slot, defaults to 0.2 .

v(xx)

Provides the flow field as a function of the location. This is implemented here only for the component in the direction of flow; entrainment components are set to zero.

Parameters:
xxarray of floats of shape (3, )

Location in the fluid for which to provide the data.

Returns:
tuple with two elements

The first element in the tuple is the velocity vector and the second is the Jacobian of the velocity vector field, both at the given location.
