PLASMAGEN is a grid generation tool within the SPECT3D Imaging
and Spectral Analysis suite that is used to set up grids for
1-D and 2-D plasmas. The application generates output files
that can be read into SPECT3D .
Used in conjunction with SPECT3D, PLASMAGEN allows users
to simulate the radiative properties of 1-D and 2-D plasmas
composed of user-specified temperature and density distributions.
Sets up plasma grids for the
1-D Cartesian (x)
1-D cylindrical (r)
1-D spherical (r)
2-D Cartesian (x-y)
2-D cylindrical (r-z)
Temperature and density distributions
are conveniently specified through the use of analytic
Grids are set up using primitives
(or objects), such as disks, rectangles, shells, and slabs.
Includes a user-friendly graphical
interface for setting up and displaying 1-D and 2-D plasma
grids, as well as their temperature and density distributions.
Includes on-line documentation.
Temperatures and densities can
be set up using the universal (plasma grid) coordinate
system, or the coordinate system of individual objects.
