Abstract

We report on our development of a two dimensional MHD code to simulate internal motions in a railgun plasma armature. We use the equations of resistive MHD, with Ohmic heating, and radiation heat transport. We use a Flux Corrected Transport code to advance all quantities in time. Preliminary runs show the growth and subsequent shedding of vortex structures in response to a small perturbation upon an initial equilibrium.
