Presentation #341.01 in the session AGN and Quasars.
The energy partitioning and magnetic field topology in radio jets from AGN on galaxy cluster scales is poorly understood. We present a series of 3D MHD jet simulations with varying energy partitioning in the injected jet between kinetic and magnetic energy. Specifically, we highlight the radio observational properties of these jets including radio brightness, spectral index, and polarization and compare to observed radio galaxies. These simulated radio properties are calculated from a population of cosmic ray electrons that is evolved self consistently during the simulations and include adiabatic effects, radiative losses, and shock re-acceleration.
