Title: An improved version of the view factor method for simulating inertial confinement fusion hohlraums

Abstract

A modified version of the view factor equations is proposed which improves the accuracy of the description of temporal effects in energy redistribution by thermal radiation in cavities driven by power pulses typical for inertial confinement fusion (ICF). The method is applied to analyze the process of radiative symmetrization in the simplest type of closed cylindrical hohlraums heated by two x-ray rings on the sidewall of the hohlraum case. Such hohlraums may be used in certain types of ICF targets driven by ion beams. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
