United algorithm LATRANT for a simulation of a radiative gas flows in 2D cylindrical geometry has been developed on the basis of the gas-dynamic code ATLANT and the program for the radiation transport calculation LATRA. The developed program takes into account the radiation transport in the multi-group approximation and the gas dynamics within the framework of the improved Lagrangian method. Two modifications of LATRANT code for spherical and plane problems in r-z geometry respectively have been developed. A quasi-one-dimensional simulation of the heating and compression of a two-layer spherical target irradiated by isotropic X-rays has been carried out to demonstrate qualitative difference between LATRANT and three-temperature approximation results. Essentially 2D simulation of compression of the same target by the angular-nonhomogeneous radiation has revealed fuel preheating and radiative symmetrization of the inner shell compression, which are typical for the indirect compression schemes. Transition of infrared radiation to X-rays has been observed in 2D simulation of plain Al foil acceleration by Nd laser pulse.
