Radiative Transfer

  • R. Paul Drake
Part of the Shock Wave and High Pressure Phenomena book series (SHOCKWAVE)


Thus far we have examined primarily systems that are purely hydrodynamic. In so doing, we have ignored a major aspect of many high-energy-density systems: radiation. It is easy to see why radiation often matters. At any given pressure, the temperature increases as density decreases, and there is some density below which radiative fluxes will exceed material fluxes.
