This Master Thesis consists of four parts: Introduction, Continuum modelling of IRDC Cores (Paper I), HCO+ line modelling of three IRDC Cores (Paper II) and Concluding Remarks. The core of this thesis consist of the papers, which deal with the actual research of this project. The first paper is intended for publication. It contains the results of the dust modelling of three cores within the W51-IRDC region. In the second paper the modelling is extended to molecular lines, for which HCO+ is treated as a pilot. Although this part is not yet intended as a formal paper, it is simply referred to as ‘Paper II’ throughout the thesis. The introduction starts with a quick review of the context, i.e. the still unfinished Star Formation debate. Also discussed here is the discovery of Infrared Dark Clouds, focusing in particular on the IRDC central to this project. Finally, this thesis finishes with some concluding remarks and sincere acknowledgments.
