Abstract
The present paper deals with the creation of a new mathematical model for 2D-computer simulation of the axisymmetrical radiative plasma magnitohydrodynamics (MHD) flows under vacuum spark discharge. In difference with the earlier works we use not only one but also two temperature approximation and take into consideration not only electrical but also magnetic fields in equation's system of the mathematical model. Created MHD-model is based on implicit full conservative difference scheme in combined Eulerian and Lagrangian approach. The system of difference equations is solved by using of Newton-like iteration procedure. Groups of equations are selected in accordance with the similar character of physical processes and the energy balance calculation is carried out for the convergence control.
