The finite element method is used to analyse turbulent coaxial jet flow using the mixing length viscosity model. The predictions from the model are shown to compare favourably with the results of experiment and of a finite difference based method. The implementation of a two-equation turbulence model in the finite element context is also discussed and the feasibility of such an approach is demonstrated by an analysis of fully developed turbulent flow in smooth walled pipes and channels. © 1977.
