Abstract

The FronTier code was developed to model the propagation of three dimensional fluid jets. FronTier is based on the method of front tracking, a numerical technique for solving systems of conservation laws in which the evolution of discontinuities is determined through the solution of the associated Riemann problem. The code was used for the numerical simulation of the Muon Collider target. The target is in the form of a mercury jet interacting with high energy proton beams in the presence of a strong magnetic field. The numerical simulation of the target evolution driven by strong pressure waves is important for the optimal target design. Theoretical estimations of the target behavior in the magnetic field, based on the linear stability analysis, are
