We present simulations, carried out with the radiation hydrodynamics code HERACLES, of the interaction between a molecular jet and the interstellar medium (ISM). We first briefly describe the academic configuration used. We then present a first series of simulations of a molecular jet percuting the ISM. We discuss the influence of the different mechanisms: hydrodynamics, cooling and radiative effects. We show that the treatment of radiative transfer and feedback has great consequences over the jet propagation.
