Abstract:

This final report summarizes the research carried out on the development of numerical approaches for simulating the plumes of electric propulsion devices. In Appendix I, we describe the development of a particle based Monte Carlo approach for simulating the plumes and impingement of chemical propulsion systems, in Appendix II, we describe a plume model for an electric propulsion device a Hall thruster. The research performed in this grant has led to significant advances in the capabilities for modeling these plume flows.
