Abstract A one-dimensional adaptive-grid finite-differencing computer code is presented for radiation-magnetohydrodynamics (R-MHD) simulations of fusion plasmas. The governing equations consist of the continuity, momentum, and energy equations of a non-relativistic, radiative and magnetized fluid plus field-intensity equations of radiation and magnetic fields. The equations are solved on an adaptive grid that dynamically moves the points at every timestep to follow steep gradients in physical quantiti... Title of program: R-MHD Catalogue Id: ACGN_v1_0 Nature of problem Radiation processes and radiation transport play an important role in inertial confinement fusion (ICF) plasmas. The dynamics of target implosion, and of the plasma channels can be strongly affected by radiative transfer. The coupling between the plasma, radiation and magnetic fields in light ion beam transport channels must be accurately determined to predict and interpret the outcome of ICF experiments.
