Physics of the inertial fusion is based on a variety of elements such as compressible hydrodynamics, radiation transport, non‐ideal equation of state, non‐LTE atomic process, and laser plasma interaction. In addition, implosion process is not in stationary state and fluid dynamics, energy transport and instabilities should be solved simultaneously. In order to study such complex physics, an integrated implosion code including all physics important in the implosion process should be developed. Before starting this work, an integrated code based on Hirt’s ALE method had been developed. But it needed sophisticated rezoning/remapping algorithm and less dissipative ALE method in hardly distorted mesh. In this work, we have developed 2‐D integrated implosion code based on CIP method which was described in ALE formation. In the IFE research, the fast ignition scheme is one of the epoch making new scheme. In the scheme, the formation of the high density core plasma is one of the problem to be solved. In this paper non‐spherical implosion for fast ignition is solved using the integrated code.
