Propagation and evolution of supersonic liquid jets in quiescent gaseous media is studied numerically using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tool. A wave propagation method finite-volume solver is employed to discretize and solve the time-dependent two-dimensional Euler equations based on diffuse interface approach. The developed flow solver is implemented in the adaptive mesh refinement code (AMROC) to improve the ability of the solver to capture inherent characteristics of compressible multiphase flow including shocks and contact discontinuities. Several benchmark problems are simulated to evaluate the performance of the numerical tool. Simulations of a supersonic liquid jet flow in gaseous environment are conducted by developed flow solver. The results indicate that our numerical methodology can be considered as a promising approach to study high speed liquid jets.
