Coupling of electromagnetic field computations with particle flow of electrically charged particles
Fachhochschule Karlsruhe - Hochschule für Technik Postfach 2440, D-76012 Karlsruhe, Germany
The particle-in-cell method is coupled with boundary-fitted coordinates in order to realistically model particle flow of electrically charged particles in technical, electromagnetic devices. Numerical algorithms describing the transition between the grid model and the mesh-free model are developed. Applications are presented in which these techniques have been successfully applied.
