A High-Order Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Modeling Micro-Pulsed Plasma Thrusters

Abstract

We present a new numerical method to model micro-pulsed plasma thrusters as a single -fluid/twotemperature plasma flow. A spectral/hp element spatial discretization is employed both for structured and unstructured meshes in twoand three-dimensions. This method is based on a discontinuous Galerkin treatment of the advection and diffusion components, and it… (More)
