  • Article

Computer simulation of shock wave propagation in plasma of positive column discharge in argon was performed. One-dimensional model of gas-discharge plasma was used, comprising the continuity equation for electron and ion component of plasma, and the equations of electrostatics, taking into account the initial and boundary conditions. Distributions of plasma parameters in the shock wave were obtained; the influence of shock wave intensity was evaluated. Simulation results with experimental data were compared.
