The aerophysics of the gas discharges and laser plasmas

Main results

  • Gas discharges - classical objects of research on the Department of Physical and Chemical Mechanics;
  • Various models have been developed to calculate the spatial electrodynamic structure of gas discharges under various conditions:
  1. Axisymmetric and planar two-dimensional drift-diffusion models for modeling a normal glow discharge;
  2. Axisymmetric and planar two-dimensional drift-diffusion models for modeling the dynamics of gas discharges in an external magnetic field;
  3. Self-consistent models for calculating the spatial structure of surface discharges in a high-speed gas flow (including the presence of an external magnetic field);

  • Currently, computer codes are being developed that implement a three-dimensional diffusion-drift model, as well as two-dimensional and three-dimensional kinetic models based on the particle-in-cell method;
  • Detailed verification and validation of developed computer models is required.
