Two Jet Logic Using Walls

Fluid logical devices are built which in the same interaction chamber use the phenomena of the turbulent mixing of free interacting jets and the interaction of the jets with bent walls (Coanda effect).

In this And, the signals are represented by the jets. If only one jet is present, it attaches to the corresponding side wall and exhausts through a lateral receiver. Jet A goes to the upper side wall and into receiver A * bar B. Jet B goes to the lower side wall and into receiver bar A * B. If both jets A and B are present they attach to each other. The combined jet exhausts through the center receiver A
B.

More complicated logical devices make use of additional control flows acting through inserted control ports. The axes of the nozzles, at least two, feeding the main jets can run parallel, or they can include an acute angle so that the jets converge.
