Abstract: The shocks and magnetic clouds caused by Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) in the solar corona and interplanetary (IP) space play an important role in the study of space weather. In the present paper, numerical simulations of some simple CME models were performed by means of a finite volume, explicit solver to advance the equations of ideal magnetohydrodynamics. The aim is to quantify here both the effect of the background wind model and of the initial polarity on the evolution of the IP CMEs and the corresponding shocks.
