Three-dimensional numerical simulations of the wind from Arches cluster were carried out with the adaptive grid yguazú-a code. From our numerical results we have obtained X-ray emission maps and spatially integrated spectra. These results have been compared with Chandra observations of the Arches cluster of Yusef-Zadeh and coworkers, obtaining a good agreement between observational and numerical results.
