Hello everyone!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We have a physics project at school for which we can choice the subject... my teammates and I have decided to make a 'flying saucer' exploiting the Coanda effect. Although this project seems to be fairly popular, we have been unable to find a good technical explanation of the Coanda effect, we are specially looking for a mathematical model.... we've been trying to find this kind of information to no avail, which has led us to believe that there is no such thing as a Coanda model but it is rather a combination of other models involving Vector fields and Viscosity.

Sorry for this long writting for such a trivial question, but I wanted some of you experienced people to emphasize a little more with our science quest , so, do you know of any good source, book, abstract, etc. that contains a model of the coanda effect, or that explains it a lil bit more mathematically?

Your help will be very much appreciatd!
