Basically, the minimum user code must look like following:
program test use ZDPlasKin ! to use module ZDPlasKin call ZDPlasKin_init() ! initialization of the module call ZDPlasKin_set_conditions() ! set conditions call ZDPlasKin_set_density() ! set initial densities call ZDPlasKin_timestep() ! main call - time integration end program test
We present below some typical cases used in plasma kinetics simulations. These programs can be adopted for users’s purposes and can be used as a “starting point”.
This test case corresponds to an Ar plasma consisting of electrons, atomic ions, and neutrals at a constant electric field. The charged particles are supposed to be generated by direct electron impact ionization and lost by 3-body recombination. >>>
Here we present a 0D simulation of a high-pressure argon plasma generated in a Micro Cathode Sustained Discharged. >>>
This test case deals with a nitrogen plasma consisting of electrons, 6 neutral, 4 charged heavy species and includes 36 processes. Here we take the mean electric field and the electron density from an external file. >>>
A ready-to-use complete list of plasmachemical processes in nitrogen-oxygen mixtures taken mainly from the book M. Capitelli, C.M. Ferreira, B.F. Gordiets and A.I. Osipov “Plasma Kinetics in Atmospheric Gases” (2000) Springer is available. >>>
