Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to investigate means of heating, accelerating, and channeling plasma jets by means of magnetic fields. The following investigations were performed 1 Transient Electrodeless Discharge Experiments 2 Steady-state Plasma Channelling Experiments 3 The Punch Method of Compressing, Heating, and Confining a Plasma 4 Relaxation Heating of a Plasma by Surface Interaction with a Magnetic Field 5 Experiments on the Punch Method of Heating 6 Propulsion Experiments with the Asymmetric Punch 7 Magnetohydrodynamic Shear Heating 8 The Two-Coil Induction Method of Measuring Conductivity and 9 MHD Channel Flow of a Rotating F LUID.
