3-DIMENSIONAL Navier-Stokes simulations of chemical oxygen-iodine laser COIL hardware are performed to elucidate the unsteady fluid dynamic aspects of these flowfields. Reacting COIL and non-reacting flow simulations are performed on varying resolution grids to explore the unsteadiness, and comparisons to experimental data are made.
