Comparison of Simulated Plasma Flowfields to Experimental Measurements for a Gas-Fed Magnetoplasmadynamic Thruster

Abstract

The flowfield of a magnetoplasmadynamic thruster was simulated numerically and the results compared to experimental measurements, in order to validate the code and obtain insight into underlying physical processes. The thruster chosen was the full-scale benchmark thruster, because it has been the subject of many experimental studies. The parallelized axi… (More)
