Numerical simulations of coagulating and dispersing nanoparticles in an incompressible turbulent planar jet with constraints are performed. The evolution of nanoparticle field is obtained by utilizing a moment method to approximate the particle's general dynamic equation. The spatio-temporal evolution of the first three moments along with the mean particle diameter and geometric standard deviation of particle diameter are discussed.
