Abstract:

This report treats three areas of advance during the 1980 effort I improvements to the 1-D strongly-coupled plasma implosion and radiation code SPLAT and results of radiative yield studies using the code II development of formalism for solving the field penetrationskin-depth problem in an inhomogeneous, time-varying imploding conductor in a plasma-loaded diode III circuit equation and scaling of hard radiation in the presence of fully developed sausage instability beading of the assembled plasma. In addition, a short section Chapter V is devoted to work in progress high-accuracy matrix inversion techniques and interpolators for solving the generalized Hertz vector equations used in II above, and for following CRE equations and diffusive behavior in general and, beginning plans for modifying 1-D MHD codes, making them compatible with the field-diffusion and corona programs and with CRE radiation packages.
