Abstract : This report describes the work of the Radiation Hydrodynamics Branch during FY 95 in support of the DNA PRS program. Critical issues covered are: (1) Design and diagnosis of ACE 4 simulator experiments, (2) Investigations of K-shell emission from medium atomic number elements, (3) Non-thermal warm x-rays, (4) puff-on-wire Z pinch loads, (5) Implosion stability, (6) Stabilization of implosions through rotation, (7) Diagnosing medium atomic number plasmas, (8) Calculating measurable radiation profiles, and (9) Radiation physics issues in yield and fidelity enhancement.
