Abstract:

This report details the work of the Radiation Hydrodynamics Branch conducted in FY93 with respect to several critical problems concerning the design and analysis of DECADE z-pinch experiments. Separate sections describe progress in 1 the evaluation of DECADEs predicted PRS performance, 2 the analysis and scaling of z-pinch experiments using phenomenological turbulence transport parameters in 1-D calculations, 3 the analysis of gas puff nozzle designs and large radius implosion stability, 4 the development of a DECADE transmission line model to study power flow, POSPRS interactions, and energy coupling to PRS loads in DECADE, 5 the development of diagnostics with which to analyze experimental and theoretical PRS data, and 6 the development of L- shell atomic models. Z-pinch physics, Plasma radiation sources, Radiation MHD.
