Viscous fluid dynamical calculation of the reaction 12C(85 MeV/nucleon) + 197Au

By Gerd Buchwald, Gerhard Graebner, Jürgen Theis, Joachim Maruhn, Walter Greiner and Horst Stöcker


Proton spectra have been calculated for the reaction 12C(85 MeV/nucleon) + 197Au using a three-dimensional hydrodynamical model with viscosity and thermal conductivity and final thermal breakup. The theoretical results are compared to recent data. It is shown that the predicted flow effects are not observable as a result of the impact parameter averaging inherent in the inclusive proton spectra. In contrast, angular distributions of medium mass nuclei (A>3) in nearly central collisions can provide signatures for flow effects
