Abstract The basic physical equations as well as a computer code for the simulation of one-dimensional radiation hydrodynamics are described. The hydrodynamic equations are combined with a multigroup method for the radiation transport. The code, written in standard FORTRAN-77, is characterized by one-dimensional planar geometry with multilayer structure. A time-splitting schema has been adopted with implicit finite-differencing formulation (including the hydrodynamics), and Lagrangian coordinates. Tab... Title of program: MULTI Catalogue Id: ABBV_v1_0 Nature of problem In inertial confinement fusion and related experiments with lasers and particle beams energy transport by thermal radiation becomes important. Under these conditions, the radiation field strongly interacts with the hydrodynamic motion through frequency-dependent emission and absorption processes.
