The hydrodynamics of radio galaxy cocoons

Abstract:
We use numerical simulations to discuss some aspects of the hydrodynamics of radio galaxies, and the affect that hydrodynamical considerations have on the long term evolution of such sources. Using these simulations, we can start to assess the impact that a radio galaxy may have on the energy and entropy budget of its host galaxy or cluster. A full hydrodynamic treatment of radio galaxy expansion is also necessary to interpret correctly the X-ray shells and cavities that, are seen in some sources by ROSAT and Chandra.
