Modeling results and data are presented for a chemically reacting ow from a thrusting Atlas II rocket at low
altitudes. High spatial resolution imagery and spectra have been obtained for a kerosene/liquid oxygen multinozzle
plume at altitudes in the continuum ow regime. A numerical solution for a three-dimensional plume ow from
the Atlas rocket engine is obtained using two different Navier­Stokes computational uid dynamics codes. The
