This work presents recent developments in the calculation of opacity and equation of state tables suitable for including in the radiation hydrodynamic code ARWEN  to study processes like ICF or X-ray secondary sources. For these calculations we use the code bigbart to compute opacities in LTE conditions, with self-consistent data generated with the Flexible Atomic Code (FAC) . Non-LTE effects are approximately taken into account by means of the new RADIOM model developed in , which makes use of existing LTE data tables. We use the screened-hydrogenic model  to derive the Equation of State (EOS) using the population and energy of each level.
