SHOCKS IN A 2-PHASE INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM: 2D MODELLING
Abstract:We present results of 2-dimensional calculations of a supernova remnant expansion into a cloudy medium. We use direct single fluid simulation of a multiphase interstellar medium. We find some disagreements between our numerical results and theoretical predictions by White and Long (1991): the X-ray map does not reveal the property of centrally peaked luminosity of the remnant.
