A turbulent buoyant jet in a stratified ambient fluid is
investigated. The theoretical integral analysis approach has been
used. By applying similarity hypothesis for velocity and temperature
profiles and deriving an entrainment function, a general model is
developed to predict jet trajectories, centerline temperature or
density and velocity decay, and the dilution on the axis of a
turbulent buoyant jet discharged at .arbitrary angles to stratified or
uniform ambients. The effects of pressure to which density difference
and curvature of the jet contribute are evaluated. Predictions
obtained with the model are compared with experimental data.
