Supersonic Jet Flow

Rectangular Convergent-Divergent Nozzle

Iso-surface of the z-component of the vorticity. Notice the vortex structures generated in the nozzle corners.

Iso-surfaces of the z-component of the vorticity (from above and from the side). Notice how the vortical structures generated at the nozzle corners affects the shear layer flow and the vortical structures generated further downstream.
