In this paper, we study the surface plasma induced jets using analytical self-similar solution for the viscous wall jet problem. It is shown that the entire induced flow field outside the plasma can be found from the velocity profile measured in a single streamwise location. Analytical expressions for key plasma induced flow characteristics are found. The analytical model's applicability to the dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma actuators is validated experimentally.
