Abstract
In our present work a computer simulation using the AFOSR code 'MAGIC' has verified the analytical simulations previously presented. The object is to eliminate the low- frequency oscillations that degrade the high-frequency operation of plasma-filled microwave tubes by adding a transverse ion flow or 'flush' to the plasma included. The computer simulation shows a rapidly growing low-frequency oscillation that is strongly damped and even terminated for increasing values of flush rate.
