Recirculating turbulent flow within a cavity with an inlet wall jet was examined. In steady water flow velocity profiles were constructed with measurements taken with a Laser Doppler Anemometer system mounted on a traversing mechanism. Two test cases were examined Re jet = 1167 and Re jet = 3231 as well as developing wall jet profiles. The results are presented with mean velocity plots and turbulent kinetic energy contours. Comparisons are then made with results obtained using a finite difference computational scheme based on the k - e turbulence model. Good agreement was obtained between the computer code predictions and the experimental data.
