There are many applications in industrial fluid mechanics and fluidic technology where jets of fluid interact. This paper examines the interaction of two liquid laminar free jets under low Reynolds number conditions and particularly highlights the phenomenon of the inwards deflecting jet. A potential flow solution is developed for the modelling of the control jet flow in the vicinity of the control nozzle exit plane, which demonstrates the presence of a net suction force modifying the momentum interaction of the two orthogonal jets under these low Reynolds number conditions.
