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

This paper presents a non-oscillatory quasineutral plasma model, in which the electric field in the ion momentum equation employs the electron drift-diffusion formulation. Due to the quasineutral

Numerical analysis of azimuthal rotating spokes in a crossed-field discharge plasma

Low-frequency rotating spokes are obtained in a cross-field discharge plasma using two-dimensional numerical simulations. A particle-fluid hybrid model is used to model the plasma flow in a

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

Two-dimensional numerical model of plasma flow in a Hall thruster

Two-dimensional numerical model of plasma flow in a Hall thruster has been made to estimate analytically the ion-loss flux to the walls of an acceleration channel, and to obtain information about

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
