Atmospheric Plumes

The buoyant jet integral model within CORMIX, CorJet, provides 3-D modeling of flows in a 2-D velocity and density field for stable discharge sources. The methodology can be applied to near-field mixing analysis for both atmospheric and aqueous single-port and multiport diffuser buoyant jet mixing.

CorJet also allows for a skewed velocity profile, allowing the downstream direction vector of velocity to vary with height.
