Paper Abstract

Directed energy flows (DEF), including a High Power ion beams (PIB), are used in different areas of science, engineering and technology. For example, very worth-while is the use of PIB for: the realization of inertial controlled fusion, pumping up gas lasers, the investigations in the area of nuclear physics and energy high density physics, the formation of powerful pulse sources of X-ray and neutron radiation, ion alloying of metals and making surfaces, which improve physical and chemical properties of metals (enlargement of their hardness, corrosion, stability, etc.). The simulation of interaction processes of X-ray radiation with the matter now becomes more actual because of the progress in physics of short length wave laser. High cost and difficulties of the experiments and also the difficulties to get fast changing physical parameters in the area of the DEF--interaction with the target make it necessary to carry out a preliminary computer simulations for the evaluation of the expected physical parameters and the very expediency of such physical experiment. The examples and results of such mathematical simulation on dynamics of intensive pulse actions on metal targets by DEF (high-power ion beams, sharped - charged jets, hypervelocity projectiles, X-ray radiation), are represented in this paper with brief description of used computer models, worked out by High Energy Density Research Center (Russia).
