Orifice resistance for ejection into a grazing flowTo explain the decrease in orifice resistance with the addition of grazing flow, the flow from an orifice was modeled by using an inviscid analysis which is valid when the orifice flow total pressure is nearly the same as the free stream grazing flow total pressure. For steady outflow from an orifice into a grazing flow, the orifice flow can enter the main grazing flow in an inviscid manner without generating large eddies to dissipate the kinetic energy of the jet. From the analysis, a simple closed-form solution was developed for the steady resistance for ejection from an orifice into a grazing-flow field. The calculated resistance compare favorably with data for a flow regime where the total pressure difference between the grazing flow and the orifice flow is small.
