Changes may have been made to this work since it was submitted for publication. A definitive version was subsequently published in Computers & Fluids, in press DOI\ud 10.1016/j.compfluid.2014.09.035Turbulent jet large eddy simulations (LES) are performed at Mach 0.9 and Reynolds number around 106\ud .\ud Implicit large-eddy simulation (ILES) is employed, namely omitting explicit subgrid scale models. The\ud Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) solution is blended into the near wall region. This makes an\ud overall hybrid LES-RANS approach. A Hamilton–Jacobi equation is applied to remove the disparate turbulence\ud length scales implied by hybridization. Computations are contrasted for a baseline axisymmetric\ud (round) nozzle and a serrated (or chevron) nozzle with high bending and penetration. Jet characteristics\ud for both nozzles are studied in detail with well documented experimental data compared. The chevron\ud effects are demonstrated by comparing both solutions using the same mesh resolution and flow conditions.\ud Higher order velocity moments with potential for aeroacoustic modeling and noise prediction, such\ud as the two-point velocity spatial correlations, are also explored. Numerical simulations presented in this\ud study utilize an in-house flow solver with improved parallel scalability and efficiency by means of data\ud packeting and a scheduling algorithm similar to the Round Robin scheduling
