Based on an experimental study on circular jets in cross-flow for α . 2.73, 4.52, 7.05 and 23.4, in which the u velocity profiles with respect to the cross-flow have been found to be similar in the η and ς directions in the fully-developed flow region, the length scales have been found to grow linearly. An empirical correlation has also been developed for the dimensionless velocity scale.
