DMSC-PIC simulation of ion collision dyamics
What is it about?
A novel validation effort involving the comparison of experimental measurements and computational predictions to show the importance and impact of physics-based collision models in DSMC-PIC simulations.
Why is it important?
Peels away the often-complex environments associated with DSMC-PIC simulations in electric propulsion and focuses on a novel validation of collision dynamics. Shows a direct relationship between collision model fidelity and ion current measurements in a simplified experiment.
