Abstract

We have calculated r-process nucleosynthesis in a new supernova model, which is driven by acoustic power generated in the inner core. In our results, plenty of actinide and the third peak elements are generated. However, light r-process elements around the first and second peak are overproduced. Our present results indicate that further studies of the r-process in this model are desirable.
