A two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation of a reflection on a field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma is performed in the parameter range of the FRC injection experiment (FIX). The full set of MHD equations are solved on a rezoned Lagrangian mesh which employs an adaptive algorithm to concentrate the grid in regions of sharp plasma pressure gradients. It is shown from the simulation results that the FRC plasma is reflected by downstream magnetic mirror field at the end of the confinement region in the FIX machine without destroying the closed magnetic flux surfaces. The effects of this field on FRC plasma are discussed
