In this paper we will numerically analyse flow mixing in multiple jets in a crossflow. The system comprises a row of six radially-distributed injectors around the main pipe. The configuration represents mixing zones in industrial systems where a counter jet can be formed in the injection plane. Flow mixing can be modified as a result of geometry and injection velocities. We propose a simple model to describe the counter jet length as a function of injection flow characteristics. We also develop empirical laws to help engineers design practical test facilities.

We then vary the velocity ratio to obtain both impinging and non-impinging jets in the injection plane. The focus is mainly on flow characteristics around the radial injection plane in the case of impinging jets, examining the mixing quality and efficiency by introducing a passive scalar discharge in a nitrogen flow. The mean velocity and width of the counter jet are finally analyzed by changing the injection velocities. These results are compared to those of non-impinging jets. It is found that the non-impinging jet configurations are convenient for short length mixing chambers, while the impinging ones should be considered in the case of longer mixing chambers.
