Turbulent mixing of two passive scalars is investigated in a constant-property jets using stochastic one-dimensional turbulence (ODT). Scalars are separately injected by a central round and a surrounding annular jet that issue into a uniform co-flow of low velocity. These scalars are transported downstream and dispersed in radial direction by turbulent advection and molecular diffusion. The jet as well as the turbulent inflow are numerically simulated with ODT as stand-alone tool using a temporal (T-ODT) and spatial (S-ODT) formulation. We show that ODT captures key properties of the turbulent mixing for one scalar by performing individual scalar statistics and for two scalars by computation of joint probabilities. Some limitations of the one-dimensional modeling approach are also discussed.
