Abstract: We present the results of an Eulerian AMR hydrodynamical and N-body simulation in a Λ CDM cosmology. Without considering any resimulating scheme, we have extracted a sample of galaxy clusters, directly obtained from the simulation, and we have studied their evolutionary histories. The merger events are produced naturally by the nonlinear evolution in the simulated cosmological volume. We discuss the role of mergers as a source of feedback and reheating of the ICM and, especially, their effects on the existence of CCs.
