Force Exerted by Water Jet Impact At Long Standoff Distances.
Proc At 3rd Int'l Symp on Jet Cutting Technology Chicago Illinois 1976 May; :B5-b68
The variation of force exerted by jet impact was a function of nozzle design, the concentration of chemicals in the jetting water, and changing jet diameter was determined at standoff distances from 0.46 to 3.66 Meters. These tests resulted in an optimized nozzle design, demonstrated optimum concentration levels for a series of guar and polyacrylic-based additives, and showed that large-diameter jets retain a higher portion of their energy than do small-diameter jets at a given standoff distance.
