Linear impulse response in hot round jets


The linear impulse response is retrieved from a numerical solution of the spatial eigenvalue problem, which is derived from the fully compressible equations of motion. Changes in the spatiotemporal stability of heated versus isothermal jets are shown to arise solely from the effect of the baroclinic torque. By considering the full linear impulse response, the competition between jet column modes and shear layer modes is characterized. Jet column modes are only found to occur for axisymmetric disturbances. In thin shear layer jets, the jet column mode is shown to prevail at low group velocities, whereas axisymmetric and helical shear layer modes dominate at high group velocities. The absolute mode of zero group velocity is found to always be of the jet column type. Although only convectively unstable, the maximum growth rates of the shear layer modes greatly exceed those of the jet column modes in thin shear layer jets. In thick shear layer jets, axisymmetric modes of mixed jet column/shear layer type arise. The weakened maximum growth rate of mixed modes accounts for the dominance of helical modes in temporal stability studies of thick shear layer jets. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
