Simulations and observations of cocoon morphologies

Abstract:
Numerical simulations suggest that, depending on, the jet parameters and on the properties of the external medium, two radically different morphologies for the lobes of extended radio sources can be expected. Analysis of maps of FRII radio sources shows that indeed such a dichotomy is reproduced in real radio sources: their lobes display either a "spearhead" or a "fat" morphology, characterised by the lobe aspect ratio. It therefore appears possible to derive information on the jet physical parameters from the radio lobe morphology.
