The explosion of rare-gas atomic clusters induced by short, intense X-ray pulses generated by a free-electron laser is studied. A numerical approach for an explicitly time-dependent description of small to medium size clusters in 3D is developed within the Thomas-Fermi model. Such an approach, though strongly simplified in comparison to fully quantum-mechanical schemes, is nevertheless expected to yield a qualitatively correct description of the electronic and ionic dynamics of these systems, at a much lower computational cost.
