In the present study, the effects of inlet jet geometry on the process of mixture with variable density have been investigated numerically. Three density ratios were considered, namely 1.0, 1.8 and 0.66 for Air-air, CH4-Air and CO2-Air mixtures respectively. The jets are produced through rectangular, elliptic and triangular tubes with aspect ratio 1.33. A second-order Reynolds stress model (RSM) is used to investigate variable density effects in asymmetric turbulent jets. Comparative studies are presented in the case of the calculations of the average variables such as the longitudinal velocity, species and the turbulent kinetic energy. The results obtained show that the asymmetric geometry noticeably enhances mixture in comparison with the axisymmetric case. Typical phenomenon of 3D jets are observed.
