Abstract : Nascap-2k is a spacecraft charging and plasma interactions code designed to be used by spacecraft designers, aerospace and materials engineers, and space plasma environments experts to study the effects of both the natural and spacecraft-generated plasma environments on spacecraft systems. This document describes the physics and numeric models used in the surface charging, potential solution, and particle tracking portions of the code.
