Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering Mechanics

Abstract: Efforts to measure and describe the loss of energy at 90° sharp-edged junctions are described. The work is focussed on energy losses at discharge and area ratios for which there are no data available and no satisfactory theory.
