Abstract

A numerical study on the efficiency of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) accelerator with diagonal electrode configuration is discussed in this contribution. The numerical simulation is conducted by setting constant diagonal angle along the channel. The magnetohyrodynamic augmented propulsion experiment (MAPX) channel designed and developed at NASA MSFC is used ti investigate the MHD accelerator performance. Equilibrium air-plasma composed of diatomic molecule of nitrogen and oxygen is applied as working gas in the acceleration process.
