Abstract

Context. The young stellar objects in the centres of protoplanetary disks are luminous X-ray sources (on the order of 1028erg s−1 to 1031erg s−1). This has been observed to be the case for Class I, Class II (CTTS) and Class III (WTTS) stars. Class I stars are the youngest of the three and still have an envelope present. Because of their disk-like nature, protoplanetary disks are randomly inclined towards an observer. Aims. The impact of X-ray radiation on inclined protoplanetary disks and their envelopes will be studied. Also ProDiMo’s capabilities to look at this impact are investigated. Lastly, the methods used by X-ray projects on protoplanetary disks, e.g. XEST, will be put to the test with the new found results.
