The numerical simulation of turbulent offset jet flow has been carried out using k–ω shear stress transport (SST) model. The simulations have been done for the offset jet flow in the quiescent medium and also in the presence of an external stream. The effect of freestream velocity on the flow and heat transfer characteristics of turbulent offset jet has been reported. The offset ratio and Reynolds number of flow considered are 5.7 and 16,000, respectively. The presence of coflow stream has been found to reduce the entrainment of surrounding fluid into the jet which in turn reduces the heat transfer from the jet to the surrounding medium. The effect of freestream velocity on the important parameters like decay of the local maximum streamwise velocity, jet spread, reattachment length, velocity logarithmic profile, velocity defect law profile, decay of the local maximum streamwise temperature, variation of wall temperature, temperature similarity profile, and Nusselt number distribution has been discussed.
