Two steady-state, high-pressure magnetic annular arc MAARC devices are compared experimentally to determine the potential OF A MAARC as an ablation facility heat source. Data are presented verifying theory of operation in two modes, one subsonic and the other apparently supersonic. A comparison is made of projected MAARC devices and currently operating conventional high-pressure arc heaters for use as heat sources for high-shear ablation facilities.
