Numerical investigations of using two different turbulence models of K-ε and K-ω on mixing characteristics of two confined jets in a crossflow at supercritical pressure have been performed. The confined jets were at 180 degrees from each other injecting into a round tube. The jet to crossflow mass flows ratio, r, was 2.96. Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations were solved using Siemens PLM CCM+ software. Results indicate higher mixing rate with K-ω turbulence model. Higher vorticity and lower turbulent kinetic energy are observed with k-ω turbulence model. Increased mixing indicate reduced velocity and pressure gradients and cooler fluid toward the tube wall.
