Abstract:

The paper contains the dynamical problem solutions for certain thermal modes of artificial plasma expansion in space, codes to calculate the parameters of freely expanding plasma jet and plasmoid, representative samples of calculations, comparison of theoretical results obtained with data of measurements in plumes of electric and conventional gas thrusters, comparison of self-similar solutions obtained with published data of analytical and numerical calculation of parameters for plasma and gas jets.
