An inviscid flow theory is derived, which permits many of the assumptions made in previous theories to be relaxed, yielding results in excellent agreement with the existing incompressible and compressible potential flow peripheral jet theories of Strand and Roche. However, unlike these potential flow analyses, the present method can be extended to real systems with component inefficiencies and flow pressure losses as well as more complex peripheral jet systems. The pressure recovery and nondimensional power coefficient were calculated in terms of the nozzle thickness and angle, jet Mach number, cushion pressure, and clearance height.
