Numerical study on the variation of pressure on India Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC) and Imperial College plasma focus machines

Arwinder Singh, Saw Sor Heoh, Lee Sing
In this paper a study on the relationship between axial speed v a , radial shock speed v s , piston speed v p and pinch temperature with the variation of pressure P 0 was carried out. The Lee's 5 phase model code was used in this study by configuring the India Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC) plasma focus machine to operate in the pressure (P 0 ) range from 1 Torr to 14 Torr. The relationships between these parameters were obtained as follows:
