High order DGTD- Maxwell solver for electric vulnerability studies
Participants : Joseph Charles, Loula Fezoui, Stéphane Lanteri, Muriel Sesques [CEA/CESTA, Bordeaux] .
The objective of this research grant with CEA/CESTA in Bordeaux is the development of a coupled Vlasov-Maxwell solver combining the high order DGTD- method on tetrahedral meshes developed in the team and a Particle-In-Cell method. The resulting DGTD-/PIC solver is used for electrical vulnerability assessment of the experimental chamber of the Laser Mégajoule system.
