Three-Dimensional Simulations of a Starburst-driven Galactic Wind

Cooper, Jackie; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Sutherland, Ralph; Bland-Hawthorn, Joss

Description

We have performed a series of three-dimensional simulations of a starburst-driven wind in an inhomogeneous interstellar medium. The introduction of an inhomogeneous disk leads to differences in the formation of the wind, most noticeably the absence of the "blow-out" effect seen in homogeneous models. A wind forms from a series of small bubbles that propagate into the tenuous gas between dense clouds in the disk. These bubbles merge and follow the path of least resistance out of the disk before...[Show more]
