abstract: We present unequal mass head-on collisions of black holes in D = 5 dimensional space-times. We have simulated BH systems with mass ratios q = 1,1/2,1/3,1/4. We extract the total energy radiated throughout the collision and compute the linear momentum flux and the recoil velocity of the final black hole. The numerical results show very good agreement with point particle calculations when extrapolated to this limit.
