Abstract: The flame of most gaseous, liquid and pulverized fuel burners assumes the characteristics of a jet. While the temperature, velocity, composition and thickness of jet flames at both the potential and fully developed zones can be determined analytically, the severally assumptions that are made often render the analysis inaccurate. Hence this research believes that experimentation is still the best solution to most engineering problems. An experimental rig was built along with three identical gas burners. The flames were made to discharge into the quiescent atmosphere. The result shows that while the flow field for the three nozzles maintained their separate identity until after x = 60mm, the supposed space between the three flames were temperature influenced at x = 20mm. The mixing of parallel identical flames is recommended for drying purposes.
