Abstract:

The report summarizes computer results for the time-dependent non-equilibrium conductivity of air subjected to an intense dose of ionizing radiation in the presence of a strong electric field. A two-temperature model is employed throughout, and an appropriate set of reaction equations for the time-dependent specie concentrations are solved. Results are presented for the conductivity, the electron concentration, and the electron and gas temperatures for several cases of interest.
