Abstract

The magnetoplasmadynamic (MPD) thruster is of significant interest to the high power in-space propulsion research. This paper verifies the applicability of the MACH2 finite volume research code to designing practical self-field MPD thruster. Theoretical development for a diverging annular geometry is documented and analyzed for a partially ionized two temperature computational model that addresses potential understanding of effect of geometric scales, and predictions of self-field magnetic effects.
