This image features a simulation using the code Eureka. The objective is to watch the wave or "ripple" grow over time after having been impacted by 150 Joules of energy. This is all part of an effort to use the growth of the Richtmyer–Meshkov and Ralyeigh-Taylor instabilities to obtain a measure of growth. These simulations are done in collaboration with laser experiments. Collaborator: Bo Li
