An investigation of the jet development, the velocity profiles, and the wall shearing stress in a two-dimensional, incompressible, turbulent wall jet was undertaken. The maximum velocity decay, jet thickness, and the shearing stress are predicted analytically by momentum-integral methods. Experimental data concerning velocity profiles, velocity decay, and jet thickness agree well with previous investigators. The wall shearing stress was measured by a hot-film technique and the results help to resolve a wide divergence between the experimental values of other investigators.
