The aim of this study is to investigate numerically the effects of four vortices on the dynamic, scalar, and turbulent fields of the hydrogen jet. These vortices, which appear in the vicinities of the nozzle, are created by the vortex generators (VGs), and they are assembled with periodicity or symmetry in order, respectively, to give four vortices of the same or opposite direction. A second-order Reynolds stress model is used to investigate asymmetric turbulent jet. The results indicate that the presence of the vortex near the emission jet section noticeably enhances mixing to ensure a good combustion.
