The behavior of a turbulent jet between bounding but not contacting walls is investigated as a hydrodynamic model for one stage of the flow in a fluid jet amplifier. For the steady flow, by means of free jet mixing theory, the entrainment in the bounded regions exterior to the jet is determined. A formula for the Coanda effect that exhibits the mixing properties is developed. This steady flow is then perturbed by the application of pressure differentials across the jet. The deflection of the jet is determined as a function of the applied pressures, the wall angle and other flow parameters.
