Jets and plumes are shear flows produced by momentum and buoyancy forces. Examples include smokestack emissions, fires

and volcano eruptions, deep sea vents, thermals, sewage discharges, thermal effluents from power stations, and ocean

dumping of sludge. Knowledge of turbulent mixing by jets and plumes is important for environmental control, impact and risk

assessment. Turbulent Jets and Plumes introduces the fundamental concepts and develops a Lagrangian approach to model

these shear flows. Thi ..
