Abstract
We present results of fully three-dimensional (3-D) simulations of astrophysical jets. These ef-
forts use the the PLUTO code (Mignone et al. 2007) run in a highly parallel environment for the
hydrodynamic, magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD), relativistic hydrodynamic (RHD), and relativis-
tic, magnetohydrodynamic (RMHD) simulations. In this work, we focus on RMHD simulations,
but also present estimations of the 15 GHz radio flux based on RHD simulations post-processed
to show the radio-emission from the astrophysical jets.
Keywords: jets, active galaxies, blazars, intracluster medium, non-linear dynamics, plasma as-
trophysics, computational fluid dynamics, relativistic, magnetized fluid flows.
