We have calculated the flow of an axisymmetric turbulent supersonic underexpanded jet into a submerged space with the help of the VP2/3 package as part of the generalized pressure correction procedure. The shear stress transfer model modified with account for the curvature of streamlines has been verified on the basis of comparison with V. I. Zapryagaev’s data obtained at the S. A. Khristianovich Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The influence of the generated vortex viscosity on the shock-wave structure of the jet, the field of flow parameters, and the turbulence characteristics has been analyzed.
