Abstract:
The steady flow model is applied to ablatively accelerated spherical targets for inertial confinement fusion. A parameter study is conducted which identifies regions of good hydrodynamic efficiency. In the limit of very large acceleration the model is seen to become planar and can be used to treat some large aspect ratio shells. A model of charged particle beam driven ablation is presented. The ablation resulting from this form of energy deposition can resemble laser driven albation in some cases, but qualitatively different behavior occurs in certain regimes of the beam power and range. Laser energy deposition by inverse bremsstrahlung is also included. A procedure for descaling the dimensionless results of the steady flow model is presented. This allows for comparison of the model with experiments and numerical simulations.
