Abstract:

This report describes the work of the Radiation Hydrodynamics Branch during FY 2002 in support of the DTRA PRS Program Critical issues covered are 1 side-on and end-on x-ray imaging of wire and gas puff implosions, 2 multi-group radiative diffusion, 3 discussions of radiation transport that includes pitfalls inherent to radiation modeling of Z-pinch plasmas, 4 K-shell yield performance assessment of argon loads on DTRA machines, 5 Z-pinch-driven direct drive inertial confinement fusion, 6 Z-scaled K-shell dielectronic recombination rate coefficients, 7 modeling enhanced energy coupling in Z-pinch plasmas, 8 incompressible fluid model for wire array implosions, and 9 increasing K-shell yields by using a low-z gas in the outer shell of a double-puff nozzle.
