This work is focused on a numerical investigation of a turbulent axi-symmetric round jet in order to incorporate the knowledge of turbulence. Flow field analysis of a turbulent jet is one of the major research areas in recent years as turbulent jet dictates the interaction between fluid and other physical phenomena. Heat transfer, natural convection, frame propagation all depend on the behavior of turbulent jet. The mass and momentum transfer phenomena governs the flow field of the jet. A two dimensional pressure based Navier-stock solver is used to resolve the flow parameter of a turbulent round jet. Around One hundred twenty five thousand quadratic mesh elements are used for the simulation. A Mesh independency test has been done before resolving results. Characteristic flow parameters such as mean axial velocity, mean radial velocity distribution, turbulent kinetic energy, turbulent intensity, the turbulent dissipation rate are determined and presented. Similarity solution for mean axial velocity distribution and mean radial velocity distribution at different axial location are calculated and compared with experimental data. The result shows good agreement with experimental data.
