    The classical one-dimensional inviscid theory does not reveal the complex flow features in a choked CD nozzle accurately. The code Fluent has been used to compute RANS flow in a 2-D CD13; nozzle for nozzle pressure ratios (NPR) corresponding to presence of shock inside the diverging part of the13; nozzle. The computed solutions differ from the simple theory so far as shock location, shock structure and13; after-shocks are concerned.
