During the flight of a multistage rocket or missile, stage separation is one of the most critical phases. The effect of plume impingement from the upper stage nozzle on the lower stage is important in determining the separation trajectory. This plume impingement not only causes loads on the lower sage, but the later also interferes with the jet from the upper stage because the flow reversal inside the spent stage cavity is directed back toward the continuing stage.
