A technique of integration across free streamlines is developed to derive parametric equations describing characteristics of a jet discharging from a two-dimensional slot. The technique is illustrated by applying it to a case study which is an investigation of flow characteristics past a wedge shaped obstacle placed symmetrically near the end of channel. Equations are developed which relate the deflection angle of the free jet, width of the jet, and the boundary geometry. The equations are expressed in terms of the integration functions, which are presented graphically. The accuracy of the functions is verified for some cases using solutions obtained by direct integration.
