Transport For Inertial Confinement Fusion
Molecular transport is a necessary feature of plasma simulation codes. We develop a transport package that has the capability to model the wide range of regimes that occurs in the ICF implosion. The package is written in Python and is easily portable to codes written in other languages. The package consists of thermal, mass and viscous transport models. To characterize the ICF flow regime we use related dimensionless Schmidt and Prandtl numbers. We have computed the Prandtl and the Schmidt numbers using our TICF package for the ICF regime.
