Abstract

The fate of gas in cluster galaxies through the dynamical processes of ram-pressure stripping and winds is modelled using a combined N-body, phenomenological and hydrodynamical approach. This allows us to model the interaction between cluster galaxies and the intra-cluster medium, and study the consequences of this interaction on the metallicity of the hot cluster gas as well as the properties of the cluster galaxies. We summarize our results for the ICM metallicity, and discuss a first attempt to improve the predictions for the properties of cluster galaxies. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
