Open cavity ሺܮ/ܦ = 4ሻ was examined at low speed ሺܷஶ = 26 ݉/ݏሻ. The baseline flow showed a typical open cavity flow. It was also found that a region of relatively high velocity fluctuations (indicated by RMS values) extends along the cavity separated shear layer from the mid of the cavity to the cavity’s trailing edge. Steady jets at an outlet velocity of 1.8 m/s was forced through a narrow slot at the leading edge. The jets modified the profile shape of the averaged ܷ velocity for the shear layer at the close proximity of the leading edge. However, the jet increased the fluctuation in the separated shear layer.
