The results of a series of numerical simulations are presented of experiments conducted at the ONERA Chalais-Meudon Research Center and at the CALSPAN-University at Buffalo Research Center on shock-shock interactions. The flow-field characteristics are described with the aid of the numerical predictions and the computed values of surface pressure and heat transfer are compared with the experimental measurements for purposes of verification and validation. A preliminary grid refinement study is conducted in some test conditions to investigate certain discrepancies that have been found between the numerical and the experimental data.
