Magnetized Electron Flow Calculation Using a Hyperbolic System

The hyperbolic-equation-system (HES) approach has been developed for the calculation of magnetized electron fluids in quasi-neutral plasmas. The HES approach has been applied to a particle-fluid

Hybrid Modeling of a Hall Thruster Using Hyperbolic System of Electron Conservation Laws IEPC-2015-206 / ISTS-2015

The hyperbolic-equation system (HES) approach is applied to the calculation of a Hall thruster using the hybrid particle-in-cell (PIC) method. The HES approach enables accurate computations of

Hyperbolic Cell-centered Finite Volume Method for Obtaining Potential Magnetic Field Solutions

A hyperbolic cell-centered finite volume solver (HCCFVS) is proposed to obtain the potential magnetic field solutions prescribed by the solar observed magnetograms. By introducing solution gradients

Two-dimensional hybrid model of gradient drift instability and enhanced electron transport in a Hall thruster

An axial-azimuthal two-dimensional Hall thruster discharge model was developed for analyzing gradient drift instability (GDI) and cross-field electron transport enhancement induced solely by the GDI.

Numerical simulation of a steady-state electron shock wave in a submicrometer semiconductor device

Appropriate numerical methods for steady-state simulations (including shock waves) when the electron flow is both subsonic and supersonic are addressed. The one-dimensional steady-state hydrodynamic

An Implicit Factored Scheme for the Compressible Navier-Stokes Equations

An implicit finite-difference scheme is developed for the numerical solution of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations in conservation- law form and, although a three-time-lev el scheme, requires only two time levels of data storage.

A two-dimensional hybrid model of the Hall thruster discharge

Particle-in-cell methods are used for ions and neutrals. Probabilistic methods are implemented for ionization, charge-exchange collisions, gas injection, and particle-wall interaction. A diffusive

A Numerical Method for Solving Incompressible Viscous Flow Problems

A numerical method for solving incompressible viscous flow problems is introduced. This method uses the velocities and the pressure as variables and is equally applicable to problems in two and three

Numerical Calculation of Time‐Dependent Viscous Incompressible Flow of Fluid with Free Surface

A new technique is described for the numerical investigation of the time‐dependent flow of an incompressible fluid, the boundary of which is partially confined and partially free. The full

Hybrid Particle-in-Cell Simulations of Magnetic Sail in Laboratory Experiment

Magnetic sail is a propellantless propulsion system proposed for an interplanetary space flight. The propulsive force is produced by the interaction between the magnetic field artificially generated
