A numerical simulation of the initial stage of the flow of a superheated fluid into a closed volume of different sizes and different distances from the nozzle to the wall was carried out. It is shown that the distance to the wall significantly affects the structure of the gas-dynamic flow. It was revealed that the distance between the nozzle and the wall affects the time for the pressure and steam content to reach quasi-stationary values.
