Self-similar solutions of screw-pinch plasma implosion

  • W. H. Choe (a1) and R. C. Venkatesan (a1)

Abstract

A self-similar analysis of supersonic compression of a “screw-pinch” plasma is carried out that generalizes earlier analyses of pure θ-pinch and Z-pinch implosions. Solutions are found for various implosion modes. It is shown that the screw-pinch plasma implosion differs qualitatively from θ-pinch and Z-pinch implosions.
