Abstract: We have developed a toy model for internal shocks with has been used to generate a large number of synthetic GRBs in order to find in the parameter space the conditions which can lead to the formations of X-ray flashes. The key condition appears to be a small contrast of the Lorentz factor in the relativistic wind emitted by the central engine.
