Abstract:

The electromagnetic implosion device which is geometrically a Z-pinch is simulated by a two-dimensional Lagrangian hydrodynamical computer code. The usual Lagrangian differencing scheme problem of mesh distortion is overcome by a coordinate orthogonalization scheme. This report described in detail the physics as well as the numerical techniques of the simulation. It is also intended as a users manual for the computer code. Author
