Experimental results related to the interaction between a uniform flow and a two-dimensional counter flowing wall jet are presented for various ratios of the jet velocity to the freestream velocity. Both visual observations and wall pressure surveys were made in the jet penetration zone. Attempts were made to choose the proper scaling variables to suitably nondimensionalize the wall pressure distributions. The geometrical characteristics of the dividing streamline were determined for a range of test conditions. Limited tests were also carried out to check the influence of the size of the jet injection device on the flow characteristics.
