A two-stage computational model of evolution of a plume generated by laser ablation of an organic solid is proposed and developed. The first stage of the laser ablation, which involves laser coupling to the target and ejection of molecules and clusters, is described by the molecular dynamics ͑MD͒ method. The second stage of a long-term expansion of the(More)
The direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method is one of the most popular numerical methods used to model rarefied gas environment flows. In order to predict the accuracy of a solution obtained by the DSMC method we have to be able to estimate its accuracy. In the work presented here we have developed a technique to estimate the numerical accuracy of the(More)
Modeling of phenomena is increasingly being used to obtain an understanding of important physical events as well as to predict properties that can be directly tied to experimental data. For systems with relatively low densities of particles, the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method is well suited for modeling gases with non-equilibrium distributions,(More)
A computational approach that combines the molecular dynamics (MD) breathing sphere model for simulation of the initial stage of laser ablation and the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method for simulation of the multi-component ablation plume development on the time-and length-scales of real experimental configurations is presented. The combined(More)
