Abstract: This investigation examines the pressure and shear stress distribution at a smooth planar boundary in the impingement region of a submerged vertical jet in water. The mean pressure and shear stress distributions are similar to those measured in air jet studies. An empirical relationship is developed for describing the shear stress distribution along the entire planar boundary in the impingement region.
