The turbulent structure of a submerged axisymmetric impinging jet containing small gas bubbles is studied experimentally under conditions of periodic external excitation. On the basis of measuring the surface-friction pulsatory component in the jet impinging on an obstacle, the effect of the suppression of large-scale eddies at large gas volume fractions is registered. The conditions of resonant growth of coherent structures and the suppression of wide-band turbulence are determined for both the single-phase and the two-phase impinging jet. An analysis of the development of different pulsatory friction components in the impinging-jet gradient region is presented.
