Underwater jets

Are there any methods to evaluate behavior of pressurized jet underwater? I'm trying to evaluate velocities and velocity distribution of jet coming out of a circular nozzle underwater. Any suggestions for equation or model are welcome. Thanks Greg

Dear geg1633:

You might talk with the folks at Mazzei:

... they make nozzles for this specific purpose, including mixed phase mixing in basins.

Are you interested in the velocity distribution immediately at the nozzle exit, or the velocity distribution in the jet as the jet spreads from the exit, or what?

For a jet spreading into an infinite body of fluid (sometimes called a "submerged jet"), if the distance from the nozzle is large compared to the nozzle diameter, then there are some formulae that describe this far-field behavior of the jet.
