Jet-intracluster medium interaction in hydra A - II. The effect of jet precession

Nawaz (Saleh), Muhammad; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Wagner, A. Y.; Sutherland, Ralph; McNamara, B. R.


We present three-dimensional relativistic hydrodynamical simulations of a precessing jet interacting with the intracluster medium and compare the simulated jet structure with the observed structure of the Hydra A northern jet. For the simulations, we use jet parameters obtained in the parameter space study of the first paper in this series and probe different values for the precession period and precession angle. We find that for a precession period P ≈ 1 Myr and a precession angle ψ ≈ 20°, the...[Show more]
