Spring 1999 Seminar Series
Numerical Modeling of Spacecraft Propulsion Systems
Spacecraft use low thrust propulsion systems for orbit maintenance and
orbit transfer. Modeling of the gas and plasma flows of these systems is
required for device optimization and for understanding spacecraft integration
issues. Our research is focused on the development of computer models for a
variety of spacecraft propulsion systems. A review is given of some of our
recent progress in modeling arc-jets and Hall thrusters.
