# Graham Wilks : Heated Jet Assimilation into External Streams

The assimilation of a simultaneous momentum and heat source into aligned uniform and non-uniform streams is considered.The governing boundary layer equations are transformed utilising aggregate properties of the flow field with respect to the excesses of heat and momentum flux at the source relative to the external stream.A non-dimensional downstream coordinate Ã? reflecting the local relative importance of jet to external stream characteristics provides a unified framework within which to investigate the entire semi-infinite flow field downstream of the source.The problems examined devolve down to transitional flow in Ã? between acknowledged strong jet and weak jet regimes in the immediate vicinity of and downstream of the source respectively.Perturbation solutions are developed in the two regimes.The downstream asymptotic velocity and temperature profiles are shown to be associated with new solutions of the Falkner-Skan equation subject to the boundary condition of symmetry,as opposed to no slip, at the axis of symmetry.A stability analysis of the new solutions and comprehensive numerical solutions over the full flow field confirm that there may be physically realisable flows in which a residual jet identity remains distinguishable within the downstream flow.
