Abstract: A literature review was performed on experimental and numerical studies of open channel and open channel with cross flow. Open channel flow was studied because it was used to obtain the flow behaviour without any impingement. Open channel with a jet flow was studied to see the mixing behaviour of fluids in a cross flow situation. In addition, it has been used to validate the numerical model with experimental data. Both turbulent and laminar jets in cross flow were studied so that basic insight into such structures can be gained and by that, correlation of jet trajectories can be understood in both the cases. Finally, in this section some basics of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and earlier work of the transverse jet by the CFD analysis have been discussed. This can provide insight on the modelling procedures and techniques to obtain accurate results.
