An account is given of an experimental investigation of the characteristics of the air-flow in a scaled-up model of a currently used nozzle for the air-jet texturing of yarns. The flow was found to be supersonic, turbulent, and of a non -uniform profile. Flow visualizations of the undisturbed and disturbed flows made by using the actual-size nozzle provided evidence that challenges previously postulated mechanisms of, loop formation based on shock waves.
