The paper addresses the measurement and prediction of heat, mass, and momentum transport in a confined axisymmetric turbulent nonreacting flow of a jet in an opposing stream. The predictions are obtained by solving numerically the conservation equations of the mean flow and the transport equations of the kinetic energy of turbulence and its dissipation rate and the mean square temperature fluctuations. The predicted velocity field is in agreement with the experiment, but the predicted scalar fields point to the need of examining the employed model of a scalar turbulent diffusion.
