Keywords: hot jets, lobed mixer, turbulence, temperature correction
A numerical study for mixing flows in an aeroengine’s exhaust system is carried out. Emphasis is put on the consideration of the effect of temperature gradients. Initial results show an encouraging outcome by a better turbulence model, which increases the diffusion by incorporating those temperature effects.
