An investigation has been undertaken to study the problems of jet-plate interaction through the method of hodograph transformation. The physical flow field is first transformed to a hodograph domain. By using properly selected flow parameters, the solution is established through numerical computations with rectangular grid in the hodograph plane. The resulting plate configuration, the free streamlines, and the flow properties in the physical plane are subsequently obtained through direct numerical integration. Jet flows toward wedge-shaped plates of arbitrary angles are solved to demonstrate the ability of the method. To verify the solutions, momentum principle has been employed in the physical plane for all test cases. It is found that the results obtained through this method are satisfactory.
