Simple solutions are presented for the equation governing one-dimensional flow of very viscous jets that issue from a round orifice and fall against a flat plate. Due to the viscous axial stresses developed, the jet may be either in tension or compression, depending on the values of various dimensionless parameters involved. The comparison of the theoretical and experimental results is good.
