Experiments of unvented parallel planar jets having variable slot widths and velocities are presented. A flow visualization study shows that, for sufficiently large spacing, the jets “flap” and that this motion is maximized for a matched exit momentum flux condition. The extent of the jet mixing with the ambient fluid is investigated using two-component hot wire anemometry. It is demonstrated that the flapping increases mixing of the jets with the ambient. In addition, it is shown that the mixing increases with distance between the jets and with jet-width ratio.
