It is known that the two-equation turbulence models under-predict the turbulence mixing shear process for the compressible non-isothermal jet. In this study, a temperature corrected turbulence model on the basis of the SST k-ω model was proposed to predict the behavior of the cold supersonic oxygen jet injecting into the high-temperature environment. The results show that the corrected SST k-ω model is superior to previous corrected k-ε models when simulating the whole process of the supersonic oxygen jet flowing from a Laval nozzle into free space. Meanwhile, the calculation results of the outlet free jet at 285 K, 772 K and 1002 K are in good agreement with experimental data and empirical formulas in the literature. Furthermore, the behavior of the supersonic oxygen jet at 1873 K is predicted by the proposed model. In addition, the effects of the ambient temperature on the jet core length and the interaction between multiple jets were also studied.
