[2] and then Andreopoulos and Rodi [3] studied in details a single perpendicular jet in cross flow and highlighted the importance of jet deflection toward the wall which is associated by lower pressure in the wake and higher pressure in the front of the jet.
The result shows that the jet deflection is over-predicted, indicating that the thermal plume is too strong.
