Hydrodynamic collimation of precessing jets Academic Article uri icon


  • Numerical experiments of a precessing adiabatic jet similar to SS 433 are presented which display hydrodynamic collimation on a large scale as suggested by an earlier work (Eichler 1983). The differences between this work and that of Kochanek & Hawley (1990), who argued against hydrodynamic collimation, are explained.
