The paper gives an explanation of the phenomenon of attachment of a cold air jet to a ceiling, based on a theoretical analysis. A formula to calculate the distance between the blowing slot and the point where the cold air jet will separate from ceiling is given. The results of calculations using this formula show good agreement with experimental data.
