This paper describes the numerical simulation of an opposing sonic jet exhausting against a supersonic free stream of Mach number 3. The flow is axisymmetric and inviscid, and the jet and free stream are composed of the same kind of gas. The numerical method employs the Harten-Yee second-order upwind TVD scheme. The numerical results have been compared with the flow visualization pictures taken by the laser-induced fluorescence method and satisfactorily good agreement has been obtained.
