Engineering application that need high flow rate, let say >60 m/s

Is there any engineering application that need high velocity of flow, let say >60 m/s which uses small pipe/tube(smaller than 20 inch)
Pls provide some background information or web sites.


RE: Engineering application that need high flow rate, let say >60 m/s

Waterjet boat propulsion.

LARGE ornamental fountains, such as the one on the Mississippi River front in East St. Louis, IL.  This fountain employs a number of 800 hp pumps putting out 400 PSIG pressure that is discharged through a single ~6" nozzle.  It was designed to have a height of >600 ft.  Depending upon weather conditions, it goes about that high.  It tends to look more like a geyser or low cloud rather than a single well formed jet.  The water falls to earth over a lake of several acres.  A picture of it can be found at http://www.eslarp.uiuc.edu/clips/orientation9708/image1.jpg
