In this work, the effect of short range correlations at the nucleonic level are investigated within a hadronic transport approach, SMASH (Simulating Many Accelerated Strongly-interacting Hadrons). Most transport approaches in the literature model the initial nuclei by sampling random positions for the nucleons according to Woods-Saxon distribution, that is, neglecting short-range correlations. Our goal is to improve the traditional approach by implementing in SMASH the nuclear configurations computed my M. Alvioli et al. that include realistic nucleon-nucleon correlations. The impact of NN correlations is studied in the context of the initial state of a heavy ion collision. Further, the eccentricity and its fluctuations are investigated, which are highly relevant for the study of collective phenomena in heavy ion collisions.
