Abstract
Vortical structures were seen emanating from the orifice; these structures consist-ed of two large rings created from the finite edges of the orifice and a pinched middle. For the unswept case, this ring travels downstream directly perpendicular to the orifice and dissipates symmetrically about the centerline. With the addition of sweep, a similar structure is observed emanating from the orifice, however the swept crossflow quickly takes effect and weakens the inboard side of the structure. As this structure travels downstream, it follows the trajectory of the swept flow and dissipates asymmetrically, and the inboard ring is significantly reduced in size at the edge of the measurement domain.
