• # Abstract

We present the results of elliptic ﬂow for the collision of nearly symmetric nuclei (10Ne20+13Al27, 18Ar40+21Sc45, 30Zn64+28Ni58, 36Kr86+41Nb93) using the quantum molecular dynamics (QMD) model. General features of elliptic ﬂow are investigated with the help of theoretical simulations. The simulations are performed at beam energies between 45 and 105 MeV/nucleon. A signiﬁcant change can be seen from in-plane to out-of-plane elliptic ﬂow of different fragments with incident energy. A comparison with experimental data is also made. Further, we show that elliptic ﬂow for different fragments follows power-law dependence as given by the function $C(A_{\text{tot}})^{𝜏}$.
