Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Moscow Technical Club MTC-IVTAN as follows The contractor will demonstrate the ability to change the aerodynamic drag of a body using microwave-generated plasma in front of the body. He will perform the following a study the dynamic characteristics of MW discharge in supersonic airflow b study the dynamic characteristics of plasma-body-airflow interaction c measure the temperature in different components of plasma d study the relaxation characteristics of MW plasma in a supersonic airflow, such as lifetime, electron density and others e study the plasma effect in dependence on structure of MW field, plasma volume, polarization, operation mode, optimization, etc. In summary, he will obtain and provide a data set for mathematical simulations.
