Abstract:

This report is primarily intended as a users manual for the two-dimensional current flow code PLATE. The current symmetry to a thin cylindrical foil that is being imploded by the j bar x B bar force in a short z-pinch device is considered. The code PLATE calculated azimuthal current asymmetries to the experimental load for various capacitor bank and parallel plate transmission line configurations. A discussion of numerical techniques is included. Two sample problems are discussed. A complete listing and sample output are included. Author
