Title: Simulation of intense heating and shock hydrodynamics in free-moving liquid targets.

Abstract

Recently, significant interest has focused on the use of free or open liquid-metal targets flowing with high velocities in various nuclear and high-energy physics applications such as the ISOLDE and muon collider projects. This is because the heat generated in solid targets due to beam bombardment cannot be removed easily and the resulting thermal shock damage is a serious problem. The behavior of a free-moving liquid mercury or gallium jet due to a proton beam deposition in a strong magnetic field has been modeled and analyzed for the muon collider project. Free liquid-metal jets offer significant advantages over conventional solid targets, particularly for the more demanding and challenging high-power applications.
