Simulation of imploding Z-pinch loads with quasi two-dimensional models

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Two major stages can be distinguished in the process of Z-pinch implosion: a run-in phase and a stagnation phase. The first, run-in phase, is characterized by an important role of shock waves and small radiative losses. The second state is a phase of existence of a dense high temperature pinch. At this stage, the role of radiation is more significant than the role of shock waves.
