Abstract: Production of iron K-shell x-rays has been studied in a series of recent experiments on 2 accelerator at Sandia. We present the results of I-D RMHD numerical simulation of these experiments. Our simulations explicitly take into account detailed radiation hydro physics, and use a heuristic model to describe the 3-D effect of the outer-through-inner mass interpenetration and current splitting associated with it, which typically take place in the nested wire array implosions. The physical model of a two-temperat…
