We have performed axially symmetric Skyrme force time-dependent Hartree-Fock calculations for the 136Xe + 209Bi system at E(lab) = 940 MeV and 1130 MeV. The evolution of the nuclear geometry is studied in detail. The calculated final fragment kinetic energies, scattering angles, and charges are in good agreement with experiment, but the fragment charge dispersion is greatly underestimated. Studies of head-on collisions for 900 MeV ≤ E(lab) ≤ 2000 MeV show no evidence for fusion and indicate a dramatic transparency for E(lab) ≳ 1500 MeV.
