PhD Thesis

A three-dimensional model and simulator of energetic plumes from space plasma thrusters


Eduardo Antonio Ahedo Galilea (UC3M), Fillippo Cichocki (CNR) and Jiewei Zhou (UC3M)


The research aims to extend both the physical models and the numerical capabilities of EP2PLUS, a three-dimensional simulator of energetic plumes emitted by space plasma thrusters. Appropriate boundary conditions will have to be chosen for each scenario, ranging from free-space to laboratory conditions. The code will then be validated against experimental data.
