Abstract:

The low chromosphere heating by the series of shock waves is investigated. Waves are initially generated in the solar photo sphere. Due to propagation in the strong stratified solar atmosphere the waves are overturning to the shock waves. The goal of present paper is to investigate it using 2D approximation. To describe the solar atmosphere one-fluid hydrodynamics with taken into consideration radiative heat transfer and absence of the thermodynamic equilibrium is used. Computer modeling is performed for one-and two-dimensional formulation of problem. The results obtained are important for understanding the physics of star atmospheres reaction on the dynamical disturbances like flares mass surges and heating by penetrating convection.
