Paper Abstract

A macroscopic cold-fluid model is used to determine the influence of cylindrical effects on the operating range and properties of the electron flow in relativistic smooth-bore magnetrons. Assuming operation at Brillouin flow, it is found that cylindrical effects (such as the centrifugal force on an electron fluid element) can significantly modify several features of the equilibrium flow and diode operating range relative to the case of planar flow.
