Paper Abstract

Multifluid equations describing the plasma of vacuum arcs expanding anisotropically from a cathode spot are given and discussed. Some first and preliminary results from an approximate analytical integration of such a system of equations are presented. Though the dependence of the plasma parameters on the direction is weak, the inclusion of angular terms and angular equations changes some results significantly, compared with the experiences from usual 1D models.
