Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO BUILD A QUASI-EQUILIBRIUM KINETIC MODEL OF HIGH FREQUENCY (HF) AIR BREAKDOWN BASED ON THE SPARK BREAKDOWN MODEL DEVELOPED AT TETRA CORPORATION FOR AIR AND SULFUR HEXAFLOURIDE (SF[6]). AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIME-DEPENDENT BREAKDOWN PROCESS IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART OF A COMPLETE PHENOMENOLOGICAL MODEL OF ELECTRO MAGNETIC PULSE (EMP) ARCING IN APERTURES. PHASE I WILL DETERMINE STREAMER BEHAVIOR AND THE ADEQUACY OF THE KINETIC METHODOLOGY IN ONE DIMENSIONAL AND ZERO DIMENSIONAL MODELS. MULTIDIMENSIONAL MODELS WILL BE BUILD AND MODEL VERIFICATION EXPERIMENTS WILL BE PERFORMED IN PHASE II.
