Figure 8

Structure of the steady-state magnetized jet in model A with \(\pmb{\kappa=1}\) , obtained via time-dependent 1D simulations. From left to right, the plots show the total pressure, Lorentz factor and the magnetization parameter σ. Jet oscillations cause compression in the squeezed regions as well as re-acceleration of the bulk flow as the flow expands. The majority of acceleration occurs in the thermally dominated core. A reconfinement shock is clearly visible in the total pressure and magnetization plots.
