High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering '08  
We numerically solve the Boltzmann equation for rarefied, non-continuum plasma flows, making use of well known approaches as PIC (Particle in Cell) and as DSMC (Direct Simulation Monte Carlo).  ...  This paper describes the numerical modeling of rarefied plasma flows under conditions where continuum assumptions fail.  ...  The main propulsion system will consist of a cluster of instationary magnetoplasmadynamic (IMPD) thruster, also known as pulsed plasma thruster.  ...

Modelling of intra- and inter species charged particle collisions for flow simulation in pulsed plasma thrusters [article]

Danilo D'Andrea, Universität Stuttgart, Universität Stuttgart
2009
A better physical understanding of electrical space propulsion systems like Pulsed Plasma Thrusters requires the numerical modelling and simulation of highly rarefied plasma flows.  ...  A Taylor series expansion up to second order in velocity of the post-collision distribution functions and the adoption of a cut-off value for the impact parameter permits the final integration of the Boltzmann  ...  Mission BW-1 will be accomplished by a Pulsed Plasma Thruster PPT, named SIMPLEX (Stuttgart Instationary MagnetoPlasmadynamic Thruster for Lunar Exploration).  ...
