A fluid code and a hybrid fluid-particle code are applied to an experimental setup used for breakdown research. The setup consists of two cylindrically symmetric parabolic electrodes, with their tips separated by 3.3 mm in a 3.5-torr argon environment. A voltage pulse was applied with a rise time of 30 μs, followed by a period at a constant voltage of 350 V… CONTINUE READING
