Paper Abstract

The paper presents a 2D hydrodynamic model of the plasma jet running out of the cathode spot of a vacuum arc, which is an outgrowth of the 1D problem that we have solved earlier. Also given are refined equations of state for a matter in a transitory phase, which conceivably might allow a through numerical simulation of a cathode spot from cold metal to hot plasma.
