In this study, the flow characteristics of an array of two circular, laminar air jets impinging on a smooth solid wall are experimentally and numerically investigated. Direct visualizations using high speed/resolution camera are performed. The evolution of the vortical structures in the area where the jet is deflected from axial to radial direction is emphasized, as well as the interaction between the two jets. A set of CFD numerical simulations in 2D flow domains are performed by using the commercial software Fluent, in the context of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) modeling. The numerical resultsare compared and validated with the experiments. The vorticity number is computed and plotted at two different positions from the jet nozzle, and a study of its distribution gives a clue on how the jets are interacting with each other in the proximity of the solid wall.
