Numerically-generated interfaces of Newtonian jets in CIJ regime
The so-called Rayleigh-Plateau instability of fluid jets has been widely studied and is extensively used in the Continuous InkJet (CIJ) printing process. The present dataset contains the numerically generated interface of Newtonian fluid jet in CIJ jetting conditions for low to moderately high stimulation amplitudes. We used Basilisk, an opensource Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software specialized in multiphase flow to compute thousands of jets of fluids for Reynolds numbers ranging from 100 to 1000 and for stimulation amplitude ranging from 1% to 3.5%. The dataset gives raw data of CFD simulations fluid-air interfaces, for each Reynolds – stimulation amplitude pair.
